Star of the Maasi Mara, Faru The Rhino Slipper will keep your little ones toes as toasty as toast whilst they’re crashing around. Sporting little horns and helpful pull-on tails makes Faru a firm favourite of the H&Q herd.
Award winning Faru is designed by H&Q and beautifully handcrafted by skilled women in a small co-operative near Kathmandu, who shape the wool by hand with soap, water and lots of love.
The slipper’s delicate features are carefully hand-sewn on which truly bring the little characters to life whilst the cross-stitched soft suede anti-slip soles allow for endless adventures in the daytime and snugglier times at bed!

Rod Campbell's classic lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in 1982.
Young children will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent - a monkey, a lion and even an elephant! But will they ever manage to send the perfect pet?
With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain and a whole host of favourite animals, Dear Zoo is a must for every child's bookshelf - and the thick card pages, chunky cased cover and sturdy flaps make it perfect for small hands.
This is a large book, 210mm x 210mm and is signed by the author, hence the pricing supplement.

POEMS FOR CHRISTMAS
Poems for Christmas is an exquisitely produced gift anthology which is guaranteed to get anyone in the festive spirit. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library, a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold-foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features an introduction by Judith Flanders, author of Christmas: A Biography. Through the generations, poets from William Shakespeare to Thomas Hardy and from John Donne to Christina Rossetti have been inspired to celebrate the Christmas season in verse. Just as we cherish our Christmas traditions now, so many of the great poets wrote beautifully about the Christmas story, magical wintry landscapes, festive traditions and making merry. And then, of course, there are the much-loved songs and carols from around the world that we still sing today, many of which are included in this enchanting anthology.
THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF SANTA CLAUS
Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
This festive Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus features charming, original illustrations by Mary Cowles Clark and an afterword by writer and journalist Ned Halley.
A baby is found by wood nymphs in the forest of Burzee. They raise him as their own and give him the name Neclaus. When he grows up, Neclaus has to leave the forest so he makes a home for himself in the laughing valley of Hohaha, where he lives amongst humans for the first time. He discovers there that many children are very poor and neglected so, to cheer them up, he whittles wooden toys as gifts. Eventually he makes presents for all the children and so the story of Santa Claus is born.
Fashioned as a whimsical fairy tale, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus was published in 1902, just two years after L. Frank Baum’s masterpiece of the imagination, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
