The naughty step is the place Sam has to sit when he has done something he knows he REALLY shouldn’t have. And Sam isn’t alone. Captain Buckleboots is sitting on the naughty step too and so is Father Christmas – uh-oh, oh no! What’s going to happen on Christmas Eve now?!

How Many Sleeps till Christmas? is the perfect festive countdown!

 

This wonderful story by Mark Sperring, and illustrated by Sebastien Braun, is a follow-up to the adorable How Many Sleeps till my Birthday?

 

It’s hard to be patient when you’re only a very little bear, and Little Pip cannot wait until Christmas! Every day he wakes up and thinks the day has finally come – it’s driving Daddy Grizzle nuts! Poor Daddy Grizzle… and poor Pip! How will he be able to carry on waiting – there are still so many sleeps to go! This is a hilarious and endearing story about patience that every parent will recognise!

 

Mark worked in printing and as a bookseller before turning his hand to writing. He has now written a number of picture books including the fabulously funny Captain Buckleboots on the Naughty Step and Father Christmas on the Naughty Step. From quirky to lyrical, Mark has a real talent for capturing the familiar moments in children’s everyday lives with warmth and humour. Mark lives in Bristol.

 

Sebastien is French and studied fine and applied arts at Strasbourg University before becoming a freelance illustrator. He moved to London in 2000 and has since worked exclusively on children’s picture books.
