Father Christmas

Father Christmas

Summary

"BLOOMING CHRISTMAS, HERE AGAIN!"

Reissued in a mini hardback gift edition, with a letter from Raymond Briggs, this is the perfect stocking filler.

On Christmas Eve morning, a very grumpy Father Christmas is dreaming about summer, and certainly doesn't want to get up in the cold to deliver presents!

Follow his journey through the night, as he battles the elements to deliver his presents.

Told through a comic strip, with beautiful illustrations based on the houses that Raymond grew up in, this is a hilarious festive tale that has delighted children for generations.
