Tinsel: The Girls Who Invented Christmas by Sibeal Pounder



I loved Tinsel because it is all about Christmas and how it was made. This was a heart touching story and I would love to read it again. At the beginning it was quite sad so I rate it 7+. This is the best book I have ever read!  Rating: 5/5  By: Scarlett (age 9)

It’s not easy being an orphan in Victorian London – but 12-year old Blanche can look after herself. Working as a carter with her old horse Rudy, she secretly dreams of giving a Christmas present to every girl and boy in the world. When she meets the irrepressible Rinki – a girl who likes to dream big – Blanche is swept away on a whirlwind festive adventure to the North Pole. Here, with the help of an excitable Christmas tree called Eggnog and a grumpy fairy named Carol, she sets about making her dreams of gift-giving come true.
