A Boy Called Christmas by Matt Haig. Illustrated by Chris Mould.
This is the story of how Father Christmas came to be the man we know today.
Everyone is young first – this story follows Nikolas, our Boy called Christmas on his path to becoming the jolliest man in the world. An adventure that teaches us that saying something is impossible is merely a restriction we put on ourselves.
A Boy called Christmas is a beautiful tale about finding your path. It shows us the importance of kindness and altruism whilst challenging what’s thought of as impossible. It also explains the old chimney trick nicely.
We’re looking forward to reading this for many Decembers to come.
