Description This watercolour painting is a reminder of the family story of when my daughter Flo was about three or four and just about understood the idea of Father Christmas leaving presents. Leading up to Christmas, whenever we asked her what she wanted, she always, without fail, said 'Five red books!'. I painted this much later when my daughter was fifteen years old.
