Christmas stocking fillers from Random House

In the second of my Christmas ideas posts I’m back to books.  I don’t apologise for this – I love them, and I think they are a basic necessity in any home.  So today we have some Christmas stocking fillers from Random House.  A wonderful Christmas themed picture book and a cute boxed set.

First in our Christmas stocking fillers from Random House is the Boxed set Roald Dahl – The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me.  The set contains the story book and a soft toy giraffe.  It retails for £12.99.

I’ve loved Roald Dahl books since I was a child, Monkey is a little young yet for these books, but give him a few years and we’ll be reading this and other classics I’m sure.  This hardback book is illustrated by Quentin Blake.

This set would make a wonderful stocking filler for an older child, they can visit the magical world with our hero the giraffe with a magical long neck and his friend Pelly the pelican with a retractable beak and a very agile monkey!

Next up in our Christmas stocking fillers from Random House is a wonderfully atmospheric picture book.  When It Snows by Richard Collingridge.

When it SnowsWhen It Snows is a 28 page picture book is a wonderful tale of a little boy and his teddy having the most amazing adventures in the snow.  This struck a chord with my Monkey immediately as he takes his beloved teddy all over the place too.

It’s a really enchanting little tale, simple, short text and amazing illustrations bring this story to life.  The world may have come to a halt because of the snow, but the little boy ventures to a land of snowmen to meet the Queen of the Poles.  Monkey was spellbound with this story, and I have to be honest, there was no chance of me squirreling this book away for his stocking!  It’s top of his bedtime reading pile.

Available for £6.99 we can recommend this as another idea for Christmas stocking fillers from Random House.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
