Picture book retrospective – The Christmas Robins

For the next few weeks I’m doing a retrospective of my picture books. The fourth title is The Christmas Robins.
Three robins go looking for Christmas. Their names are Robbie, Rupert and Ropey.

This one was based on some robin decorations Mollie made. She brought three of them to work one day, and as soon as I saw them they looked as if they were marching along, and a story started to emerge. My favourite picture is where they meet a grumpy camel belonging to one of the three Kings. He’s very upset at being dragged away from his nice hot home in the desert.
