'HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!'  Frank Cottrell Boyce on  Hamish and the WorldStoppers    
  'Poor Danny Wallace! Once kids get their hands on this quirky and hilarious book, they're gonna be bugging him to write Hamish stories 'til he's 97'  Tim Minchin on  Hamish and the WorldStoppers  
 
  The important task of saving the world doesn't stop just because it's Christmas, so get ready for THREE festive adventures featuring Hamish Ellerby and his pals in the PDF!
 
   
  Can  Hamish  stop a whole hoard of rampaging Terribles hoping to ruin Christmas?
  How will  Elliot   deal with a sneaky sweet salesmen determined to give Starkley a sugar-crash to remember?
  And, what will  Alice  do when faced with an unexpected Christmas Eve visitor?
   
  Tis the season to be jolly, but will this turn out to be a TERRIBLE Christmas for Starkley?
   
   Fa La La La La La La La ARGH!  
 
  Praise for the  Hamish   series:
  'All the with and warmth of Dahl & Blake at their best. Irresistible.'  Phil Earle                                                  
  'Original, quirky and super silly'      The Sun    
  'Like David Walliams, Wallace is a comedian turned children's author. Of the two, Wallace's writing is the funnier.'    The Sunday Times    
  'vividly imagined ... bristling with one-liners'    The Guardian

I love love love Christmas so this book is perfect for me! It’s 3 stories in 1 and they are really good stories that made me laugh. I’ve read other books in the Hamish series and this one is even better than those! I really enjoyed it.

Hamish and the Terrible Terrible Christmas is just brilliant- we couldn't put it down! It's actually 3 short stories in one, so perfect for people who don't like stories that are too long. It's great if you've already read the rest of the Hamish series, as there are references to things that happened in the other books, but it's still fun if you haven't. We loved the illustrations and it really did make us feel Christmassy!

My class thoroughly enjoyed this book and kept asking when we were going to read the next section. With three stories included, it helped keep their attention and they had quiet a lot of giggles during all three stories.

This is the first Hamish book we have read, it’s a nice Christmas book with three stories in 1, fun and filled with illustrations. Amusing stories keep Children’s and adults interest. I think we may be adding a few more hamish books to Santa Christmas list!
