Emily Brown and Father Christmas
Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books
Father Christmas is on a mission to be modern this year. He has new machines to help him climb into the houses, a new whizzy sleigh with turbo-whatsits and a navigation system to plan his routes. The only problem with all this modern technology is that none of it is magic!
Emily knows that sometimes the old ways are the best, so while Santa puts his feet up and has a little snooze, Emily Brown and Stanley save Christmas the proper way, with magic.
The unshakeable Emily Brown is just the girl to sort Santa out. With her trusty sidekick and a strong dose of determination, Emily reminds Father Christmas that he doesn’t need to be up-to-date, everyone loves him just the way he is.
Fabulously fun artwork from Neal Layton and a laugh-out-loud text from the author of How to Train Your Dragon, Emily Brown is a character that everyone will love. This festive tale serves as a perfect introduction to the series, or a great addition for long-standing fans.
