Toggle navigationMENU. Lily's parents, who plan to make the attic Lily's bedroom, are pleased to find the toys, though they need repair. It's past midnight when the parents finally leave their sleeping baby and Father Christmas can come out; still, he leaves some toy-mending materials before going very belatedly on his way. Hendry's charmingly offbeat story is nicely complemented by Heap's spare, delicately comical pen-and-watercolor illustrations.

By the time Father Christmas arrives the house is so stuffed that the poor old duffer has trouble keeping tabs on who's where. He's eventually forced into removing his boots and socks just to count them all. It all ends with some of my favourite Christmas book things. There's a splendid cross section of the entire house, so you can count the inhabitants yourself, and maybe find space for some more. And of course there's a great big Christmas dinner – where absolutely nobody argues. It's a miracle on Exeter Street.
