Six Books I'm Reading...
Where Does Joe Go? by Tracey Campbell Pearson is one of those unexpected Christmas classics; unexpected because the word Christmas is never even mentioned.
Joe runs an ice cream parlour in town but come winter each year he disappears. Each friend and neighbour has a theory as to where Joe goes. From the moon, to the beach, to tango dancing to the desert, we hear everyone's thoughts on Joe. But as you may have guessed, our pot bellied friend with the fluffy white beard is not up to any of these things.The final charming illustration of Joe in a red suit feeding ice cream cones to reindeer puts the rumour mill to rest once and for all.
I love this book for Christmas and I think you will too.
