Product Description


This is a delightful tale with a nice rhyming cadence, a well-paced and clever buildup, and satisfying ending. The vibrant acrylic illustrations are charming and filled with action, fine for group storytime or bedtime sharing.
—School Library Journal

The endearing mixed-media illustrations, often arranged on the page within a simple sewing pattern, effectively capture the joy of the season. The warm message of the closeness of family pervades both text and pictures, and the final two-page spread brings all the inhabitants together, ice-skating in their brand-new finery—a lovely communal touch.
—Booklist onilne

About the Author

Birdie Black is Kate Wilson, managing director of Nosy Crow. She has twenty-five years of experience in publishing, most of it in children’s publishing, and has written several books. She was looking for a story that was all about the joy of giving at Christmas, and she couldn’t find one, so she wrote one. She lives in London, England, with her husband and two children.

Rosalind Beardshaw has illustrated several picture books for children. A television star and artist named Rolf Harris visited her school when she was ten years old and inspired her to draw and draw and draw. She’s still drawing today. She lives in York, England with her partner, young son, and baby daughter.

This is a really cute story! The characters are cute and the story has a nice flow. It has a good message without being cheesy and I really like that it's not a "Santa" story, it's about giving something special to the people we love. This is definitely one that is going to be a favorite to read Christmas time.

I ordered 3 of these books for Christmas. The message of Christmas sharing is excellent, pictures are nice and bright. The children I bought for are probably a little young to get the message, but it is a cute story.

I liked it more than the 3 year old. Tale of how everyone gets joy no matter how small from a bolt of cloth. Encourages gratitude, resourcefulness, recycling and creativity.

This is a wonderful story of what is leftovers, or trash, for one is something perfect, or "Just Right" as the title states, for another. I purchased this book for my personal collection, but I will certainly be using it for my preschool storytime at the library!
