The Children's Books Christmas Special Spectacular!

Merry Christmas everyone! Usually this time of year, you’d be in your childhood bedroom, re-reading the books that got you through primary school. This year, a lot of us can’t go home this Christmas, but there’s still every reason to revisit the books that made life better when you were nine. It might even make life better now? Caroline and occasional co-host Ella Risbridger talk about childhood reading habits, magazines, tough but beautiful Christmases, and why the Secret Garden is the greatest love triangle of all time.


We mention:

Tom's Midnight Garden

Charmed Life

Miss Happiness & Miss Flower

The Secret Garden

Back Home

the "My Story" books

The Illustrated Mum

The Suitcase Kid

The Lottie Project

Going Solo

Danny The Champion of The World

& more!


Caroline and Ella both have books for younger people coming out next year! Pick up The Secret Detectives by Ella Risbridger and All Our Hidden Gifts by Caroline O'Donoghue. See you in 2021!
