Come and meet the Hawkins family...
There's Harry, 8 years old, the eldest of the children who does the smelliest of farts.
Then there's Ben, 6, who likes to mend things by taking them apart, then has trouble putting them back together.
What about Ruby, 5, the only girl in the family who just talks, talks, talks and TALKS.
The baby of the bunch is Jonny, 3, who lives for his trains: Choo! Choo!
And not forgetting Dad, who single-handedly brings up the children, ensuring they look out for one another as their individual personalities and characters grow within each story.

The Hawkins children are excited to go their nanny and grandad's house for Christmas. In fact, Ruby is so excited that she goes right past their red front door at number 61!
But once the children, and Dad, have tumbled through the front door and into the house they notice something shocking... Nanny and Grandad have no Christmas tree! They have no decorations at all!
And so the children get to work, determined to bring Christmas to number 61 before Santa comes to town.

I found this a lovely little read, where the author remembers her childhood. It brought back fond childhood memories for me, where my mum had me making paper-chains at Christmas time. The illustrations are bright and clear and I'm sure the 'Hawkins' series will be just as good as this.

In this book, the author has kindly shared her memories in related to Christmas. I found it refreshing that the focus is on how the family worked together to achieve a goal instead of a typical story about opening presents on Christmas Day. The illustrations are interesting as well as they do remind me of books that I read when I was a child. I certainly took a trip down the memory lane of my own after reading this book.

This is a lovely story of the love and thoughtfulness of a family, in which the author invites the reader into her childhood and into her heart. It is well written with much warmth and feeling. The book is bright and colorful with wonderful timeless illustrations with the charm of yesteryear. You will fall in love with this delightful, caring little family and the journey continues as a series. We are very happy to recommend this delightful and heart-warming book.
