Bookmark in Spalding has selected The Lost Christmas Puppy by Linda Steliou as its book of the week.
Little Linda was three years old when she told Father Christmas a secret.
‘What I want more than anything is to have a puppy of my own to love’, she confided.
But with every Christmas that went by, no puppy appeared.
Linda grew into a busy working mum and wife, and her dreams of a puppy were pushed to the back of her mind.
It wasn’t until a special visitor one Christmas Eve, that she began to remember the wish she had made 60 years earlier...
Fans of Christmas at the Ragdoll Orphanage and A Street Cat Named Bob will love this book full of charming and touching stories.
This is an unforgettable true story about childhood, love, and how an animal can change anyone’s life.
The perfect gift for the animal lover in your life – or something to slip into your own stocking so that you can enjoy a few moments of nostalgia in the midst of the business of the festive season.
The book retails for £6.99 but there is a 20 per cent off discount voucher in the Spalding Guardian of December 3.
