Customer Reviews

This is a great read, not just for children. I enjoyed very much 'Being a cat' by the same author, and I think this one is even better. It is not a cosy Christmas story, but has a lot of drama and even some darkness. A very original idea to tell the story of Father Christmas as a child! Lovely illustrations and cover too.

Charming book, with superb illustrations. Hope this sells well outside of the Christmas period.
