Father Christmas and Belinda is a lovely book full of colour photographs. Belinda’s owner gets a new doll at a Christmas party and relegates her and her doll-friend Tod to the window-ledge because they are old and dirty.

It ends with them being reunited with their owner who has missed them terribly!
