A delightful tasty treat of a Christmas (or any time of the year) read, set on a fascinating Cornish tidal-island village. Polly, Huckle and friends return, with Neil the Puffin often stealing the limelight, this could though, easily be a standalone read. The first few sentences stimulate your interest as an announcement is made, something bad has happened! Can “the Bad Thing” be made good in time for Christmas? Jenny Colgan excels at a light, fresh tone, yet she ensures a feeling of real life infuses the story, with twists, and bumps joining the loveliness. ‘Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery’ is an absolutely gorgeous tale, so readable and charming, and of course, you really shouldn't miss out on the chance of getting to know Neil the Puffin! ~ Liz Robinson

Christmas at the Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan

It's Christmas in the Cornish coastal village of Mount Polbearne - a time for family, friends and feasting.

But when a storm cuts the village off from the mainland, can the villagers work together to save Christmas for everybody?
