Superstar illustrator Nick Sharratt takes inspiration from a celebration of the winter solstice in this charming and colourful Little Gem.
On a dark winter’s evening at the end of December, something strange is happening in the school playground. Lessons finished long ago, but there are lots of children still at school and they’re all carrying … clocks! Clocks of every shape and size – big, small, round and square, heart-shaped, star-shaped. What’s going on? Join the children and find out as they celebrate the winter solstice on the shortest day of the year – marching through the town in the Carnival of the Clocks!
