Christmas Treehouse Advent Calendar from Roger la Borde with woodland animals around a rather glorious garden treehouse. All the family can have fun slotting this advent calendar together by adding a piece each day in the run up to Christmas. Beautifully illustrated by Jane Ray.
Simply pop out each piece, which is numbered and add a little bit each day, number by number until you put the final piece in on Christmas Eve. Fun to build and makes a beautiful decoration that could be used again and again.

About the artist
Born in London, Jane studied art and design at Middlesex University. After graduating she designed a series of greetings cards for Roger la Borde, with whom she still works, followed by various editorial work, posters and book jackets.
But she was drawn to the world of children’s books and in 1989 her first full colour picture book, A Balloon for Grandad by Nigel Gray, was published, the start of a long and continuing collaboration with Orchard. Since then Jane has illustrated over 60 children’s books, working with authors such as Michael Rosen, Carol Ann Duffy, Jeanette Winterson, Dianne Hofmeyr and Kevin Crossley Holland.
She also writes her own material including Can you catch a Mermaid?, The Apple Pip Princess, The Dolls House Fairy, Ahmed and the Feather Girl and The Elephant’s Garden.
