Snuggle up with Peppa Pig in this 2-in-1 wintertime storybook! It's Christmas Eve, and Peppa is hoping for a very special gift from Santa Claus. Will her wish come true? Then, Peppa and George decide to build a great, big snowman.

(see this book on Goodreads)

Okay. That's the second Peppa Pig book I've read. I'm officially not a fan. It's not that there's necessarily anything wrong with the characters or stories here; they're just a bit young and simple for my taste.

This book features two stories, one about Santa forgetting to deliver Peppa's gift (and this mistake ends up granting her wish, anyway; how convenient) and one about Peppa and George playing in the snow (which ends with the whole family laughing hysterically over nothing until they fall over).

These books are obvious tie-ins for the TV series. There aren't even any authors or illustrators listed. I'm generally not a fan of books like this, because they seem to be pumped out just to cash in on little kids' obsessions. These books appear to be no different.
