Description

A young meerkat travels the world looking for Christmas in this witty and festive picture book full of cards that readers can flip open to read!

Sunny Meerkat isn’t quite sure if Christmas in the Kalahari Desert with his meerkat family is the right sort of Christmas. After all, there’s no snow, no Christmas trees, and certainly no holiday treats! Sunny sets off on a journey around the world visiting robins, penguins, and reindeer in search of the picture-perfect Christmas...before realizing he might have left it at home after all.
