Synopsis

It’s Christmas Eve with the hoglets.

Prickles and Primrose are excited. That is until… As they decorate the Christmas tree they discover the star for the top has shattered. Not to be defeated – the brave hoglets set out into the woods to seek a substitute star but stumble across Santa instead.

What adventure will they encounter? AND… what about the star?

Review by Stacey

Our first Christmas book of the year comes in the form of children’s storybook, Hoglets’ Christmas Magic written by Lynette Creswell. This 32-page story features two very cute little hoglets, Prickles and Primrose, as they leave their home looking for a star to go on top of their Christmas tree as their usual one has broken.

Whilst searching the siblings meet Santa and his reindeers who are also looking for something. One of the toys has fallen from his sleigh and they don’t want a child not receiving a gift on Christmas morning and think they are on the naughty list. The hoglets offer their help.

Hoglets’ Christmas Magic is a very cheerful book both in terms of plot and illustrations which really brings the story to life as they are bright, colourful, and a joy to look at and capture the words perfectly.

There is quite a lot of text, so this isn’t a book for a new reader to read alone, this is for more confident readers or for parents/guardians to read to a child. It certainly would make a wonderful bedtime story, especially when the excitement of Christmas has started.

This is an enchanting adventure story that will capture the hearts of the reader. It also contains strong messages of friendship, caring, helpfulness, and family. It was a complete joy to read and I hope that there will be more stories to come featuring the hoglets.

Author Info

Lynette was born in London, but moved to Burnley, Lancashire when she was a small child. From the tender age of five she was raised by her grandmother and given books to help keep her quiet. Lynette found she had a passion for reading and subsequently started writing once she began school.

Years later, Lynette’s husband was so impressed with her ability to capture children’s imaginations with her stories that he encouraged her love of writing by buying her a laptop in the hope she would write something more substantial. So, with a little push in the right direction, Lynette decided to write a fantasy trilogy and the subject would be something that all children love to read about (and most adults too) – magic!

Her inspiration came from childhood books written by Enid Blyton. The Enchanted Wood and The Faraway Tree were her first real taste of fantasy and the reason why she writes today.

Her first novel, Sinners of Magic, was published in 2012 and is now receiving attention from both London and American film producers. Betrayers of Magic became the second book of the series followed by Defenders of Magic.

Lynette has since had one of her short stories published in America, hitting No 4 in the US bestsellers charts. The Witching Hour is only available via Amazon Kindle.

Lynette now lives in North Lincolnshire with her husband and King Charles spaniel, Ruby. All of her grandchildren are the apple of her eye.
