Santa’s Marvellous Mechanical Workshop


A gorgeously illustrated celebration of creativity, upcycling and Christmas magic!

It's Christmas Eve at Lily's new house, but it doesn't feel like Christmas being surrounded by boxes and she misses her old home and friends.

Suddenly, in a moment of magic, Lily is whisked away to the North Pole! Santa's Elfbots need her help to create new toys from used, discarded ones. Lily comes to learn that with a dash of imagination, she can make anything - even, perhaps, a new home...

The perfect give for young budding engineers who love to invent things! Will appeal to fans of The Polar Express and Rosie Revere, Engineer. This is the picture-book debut of Vashti Hardy, the Blue-Peter-Book-Award-winning author of children's novels known for their distinctive fusion of imagination and invention. Illustrator and rising star Katie Cottle was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
