Fox and Squirrel come together to make the best Christmas ever!
Fox and Squirrel are getting ready for the festive season, but they can’t seem to agree on how to celebrate. It’s only when things fall apart that they realize what really matters at Christmas time: spending the time together.

With spare text and her expressive watercolour illustrations, Ruth Ohi delivers a heartwarming tale about the importance of friendship, and the secure feeling that it can bring.
