The Night I Met Father Christmas

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Review

When Jackson’s friend tells him that Father Christmas isn’t real, Jackson goes out of his way to prove his existence. Waiting up all night on Christmas Eve, Jackson’s wish comes true when he hears Father Christmas crashing down his chimney.

What Jackson doesn’t realise is that Father Christmas is an elf called Torvil Christmas. Helping him deliver the remaining of the presents, Jackson learns the story of how Torvil Christmas – a hard, cruel elf who was abandoned at birth – became the kind-hearted Father Christmas spreading love and joy to children all over the world.

This magical story of the origins of Father Christmas is utterly festive and charming, and adults will recognise and enjoy the nod to A Christmas Carol. A perfect bedtime story while counting down the days to Christmas.
