A New Year's Reunion by Yu Li-Qiong Maomao is worried a lost fortune coin will spell bad luck.
 12 of 12 


Bear does not like parties, balloons, cards or candles, and would rather spend his birthday cleaning the house on his own. Thankfully, Mouse has other ideas in A Birthday For Bear by Bonny Becker (Walker, £11.99). Christmas is a time for seeing old friends, so get reacquainted with Belle and her bunny pal Boo, as they hang stockings and trim the tree in Belle & Boo And The Very Merry Christmas by Mandy Sutcliffe (Orchard, £10.99). And no festive season is complete without The Night Before Christmas by Clement C Moore (Orchard, £5.99), which gains striking new illustrations from Zdenko Basic and Manuel Samberac. Finally, round off your 2013 with A New Year’s Reunion by Yu Li-Qiong (Walker, £6.99). When her father returns from working away, Maomao celebrates by making rice balls, and finds a lucky fortune coin – but then loses it. Can she be restored to happiness before her father has to leave again?
