About the book

Bestselling author Matt Haig’s Christmas series has been described by Joanne Harris as ‘Perfect to read aloud with a child on Christmas Eve’ and ‘Absolutely brilliant’ by CBBC.

Father Christmas and Me follows on from A Boy Called Christmas and The Girl Who Saved Christmas. In it, Amelia, our heroine from The Girl Who Saved Christmas, is now living in Elfhelm, but it isn't always easy growing up as a human in Elfhelm, even if your adoptive parents are the newly married Father Christmas and Mary Christmas.

For one thing, Elf School can be annoying when you have to sing Christmas songs every day – even in July – and when you fail all your toy-making tests. Also it can get very, very cold.

But when the jealous Easter Bunny and his rabbit army launch an attack to stop Christmas, it's up to Amelia, her new family and the elves to keep Christmas alive. Before it's too late… LET THE BATTLE FOR CHRISTMAS BEGIN

Perfect for readers aged:7+
