'A gorgeous tale brimming with the magic of Christmas. A sheer delight for all kids both big AND small.' Ruth Jones, award-winning writer and comedian
'Enchanting, funny and intriguing in equal measure' Philip Ardagh, bestselling author
'A fire-side gem of a story' Abi Elphinstone, bestselling author of Sky Song and Everdark
'Bubbles with warmth and mischievous humour ... irresistible' Alexander Armstrong, presenter, comedian and writer


Jackson knows all about the flying reindeer, he knows about the elves and the secret North Pole workshop, he knows about the magic that allows Father Christmas to deliver presents around the world in just one night, but there's one thing he doesn't know ... how did Father Christmas become Father Christmas?

That all changes when, one Christmas Eve, Jackson meets Father Christmas and hears his incredible story.

So begins an enchanting fairy-tale into a magical snowy landscape , where Torvil , a mean-spirited and miserly elf, is about to discover the true meaning of Christmas. This might not have been the story Jackson was expecting but, as Father Christmas tells him, no good story ever is...

Get ready for a Christmas classic in the making from actor and comedian Ben Miller with beautiful illustrations throughout from emerging talent Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini , that will remind everyone of the true spirit of Christmas and prove once and for all that Father Christmas really does exist!
