From the multi award-winning creator of the modern classic Meerkat Mail, this gorgeous festive treat is full of Christmas card flaps to lift, as Sunny the meerkat travels the world in the search of the perfect Christmas.
A Sunday Times Book of the Year.
Sunny wants a white Christmas, with a decorated tree, carols and sprouts for dinner . . . none of which he can see at home in the Kalahari desert. So off he heads to find the perfect Christmas elsewhere, before realizing that maybe Christmas isn't all about the trimmings.
Emily Gravett's witty and heartwarming celebration of festive fun and family love shows that Christmas can be whatever you want it to be.

Emily Gravett’s Meerkat Christmas sees Sunny the meerkat travel to the seaside and Antarctic to find the perfect snowy Christmas, only to learn that being with his family in the Kalahari, where cactuses are decorated with insects and snakes, is perfect after all. It is beautifully drawn, with comical mice, penguins and reindeer, cards to open, and bad cracker jokes
Sunday Times - Book of the Year
Global adventures come from the sublime Emily Gravett in Meerkat Christmas. A meerkat goes all around the world in search of snow, fir trees, figgy pudding etc, sending chirpy postcards to his family in the Kalahari desert that convey the disappointingly dismal reality of Christmas away from family and home.
This witty postcard adventure is about what really makes Christmas perfect.
The two-time Kate Greenaway medal winner delivers more of her Meerkat Mail with this postcard-flap filled tale.
