Book recommendations for December

Some ideas for December and Christmas reading.

Ghost the Christmas Stag, tells the story of Hector.  Like many children, Hector's greatest fear is ending up on Santa's naughty list. But that all changes after a surprise encounter with an unfamiliar creature in the woods

Try Pie in the Sky.  When Jingwen moves to Australia, he feels like he’s landed on Mars. School is torture, making friends is impossible, since he doesn’t speak English, and he's stuck looking after his (extremely irritating) little brother, Yanghao. To distract himself from the loneliness, Jingwen daydreams about making all the cakes on the menu of the bakery his father had planned to open before he unexpectedly died. 

The Cousins is a story about family secrets, a brilliant new thriller.
