Overview

Welcome the U.K.’s muddy-puddle-jumping sensation! The beloved, award-winning Peppa Pig hops from screen to page in her first book with Candlewick.

It’s almost Christmas, and Peppa Pig and her little brother, George, are mailing their letters to Santa. All of Peppa’s friends are there, too, and each one tells Peppa the special gift on their list. Peppa is excited to help Daddy Pig and Mummy Pig pick out and decorate their enormous tree, and she can’t wait for the big day to arrive. But little does she know that a surprise is in store on Christmas Eve, and that she may play a part in saving the day! Peppa is the endearing star of Peppa Pig — a BAFTA-winning preschool TV series that has been a long-running success in the U.K. and is now winning devoted fans in the U.S. with daily showings on Nick Jr. Peppa and her little brother, her daddy, her mummy, and her many friends arrive at Candlewick just in time for the holiday season, poised for much muddy puddle jumping and more new adventures to come.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Peppa Pig—the perky star of an animated TV series that airs on Nick Jr.—saves Christmas (for her friends, anyway) in this light story. Santa’s list blows away (“Ho, ho-uh-oh!”) just before he slides down Peppa’s chimney. Peppa and her brother are waiting for him by the tree (a bit oddly, since they were last seen falling asleep). Peppa tells Santa what each of her friends is asking for, so he knows what gifts to deliver where. Though the book’s digital art is plenty cheerful, Peppa’s personality and humor are fairly subdued in this holiday outing. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3—This book is based on the television show made popular in the UK, and now on Nickelodeon. Peppa and her family and friends write letters to Santa and pick out a tree and decorate it. When she and her brother, George, wake up to meet Santa, they are able to help him after his list blows away, because Peppa remembers exactly what all of her friends asked for. The pleasant story and charming, digital cartoon characters make this a fine addition for Peppa fans.—Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
Peppa Pig moves from her preschool TV series shown on Nick Jr. to the holiday bookshelf with this simple, amusing story about Santa's missing list of toys and their intended recipients. Peppa and her little brother George open the story by meeting their friends at the mailbox to mail their letters to Santa with their toy requests. The porcine siblings prepare for the holiday with their parents, and on Christmas Eve, the little pigs surprise Santa in their living room as he leaves their wrapped gifts. He discovers he has lost his list of presents, and Peppa is able to help Santa, as she can remember all the items their friends requested. The final page shows all the friends lined up at the pig family's door, carrying their new Christmas toys. The story is just the right length and complexity for preschoolers who are starting to listen to real stories, and though the text is short and simple, it still offers an actual plot and humorous dialogue. Digitally produced illustrations use simple shapes with thick outlines around the characters and a jazzy palette of neon brights contrasted with cool pastels to create a sharp, contemporary mood. Peppa Pig and her friends seem destined for further adventures to complement the currently popular TV series. (Picture book. 2-5)

    My grandchilren 2 1/2 & 4 are addicted to the Peppa Pig show. They absolutely loved the book. It is hard to find anyuthing Peppa Pig in the states. I have a friend in Scotland and had quite a number of Peppa Pig stuff sent over to here.
