WHAT IT’S ABOUT

You are about to read the true story of Father Christmas.
It is a story that proves that nothing is impossible.
If you are one of those people who believe that some things are impossible, you should put this book down right away. It is most certainly not for you.
Because this book is FULL of impossible things.

Are you still reading?

Good.

Then let us begin . . .

A Boy Called Christmas is a tale of adventure, snow, kidnapping, elves, more snow, and an eleven-year-old boy called Nikolas, who isn’t afraid to believe in magic.

EXTRACT

You are about to read the true story of Father Christmas.

WHAT I THOUGHT

A Boy Called Christmas is a treat, a delightful, charming Christmas fable. I absolutely loved it. This book contains all the elements of the perfect Christmas story – magic, elves, snow, chocolate coins, wishes coming true, sleigh rides and not forgetting the reindeer. There are some familiar elements in this story that can be found in a lot of Christmas tales but there are a whole host of original story elements. This book made me all warm and mushy inside and develop a craving for a mug of hot chocolate – with cream and marshmallows of course.
