A Boy Called Christmas
Think you know who Father Christmas is? Think again! This is the (rather snowy) story of an ordinary boy called Nikolas, for whom happiness is something that happens to other people. Nevertheless, he refuses to stop believing in magic.
Matt Haig brings his signature wit and warmth to this seasonal treasure which is sure to delight young readers.
Book Trust Primary Programme Coordinator Annabel Thomas recommends A Boy Called Christmas because: 'This is a heartwarming and funny read, full of adventure, reminding us of the magic of Christmas. I really loved Chris Mould's illustrated letters from Father Christmas too - imagine how exciting it would be to get one! I can only hope…'
