Book Review – A Boy Called Christmas – Matt Haig (Illustrations by Chris Mould)

‘The most evergreen, immortal Christmas story for decades’- Stephen Fry

Life was changing for Nikolas, in ways he couldn’t possibly have imagined. Things were going to happen to him. Good things. Bad things. Impossible things.

Father Christmas was not always an old, wise and jolly man with a big white beard, he was once just a little boy.

A fond, comedic and magical tale from award-winning writer Matt Haig that tells the tale of how one little boy from Finland came to become Father Christmas.

Little Nikolas’s life was not simple. Rarely getting any sort of gift at Christmas, of course he believed in happiness…but he didn’t receive very much of it.

Until one day, something incredible happened.

‘A Christmas classic for a new generation, Haig’s gentle, enthralling tale tells the story of Father Christmas as a boy. It’s touching, funny and packed with memorable characters’ – Sunday Mail

Join Nikolas on a life-changing journey, full of fantastic characters and stunning moments, watch how one little boy came to be the ultimate symbol of Christmas itself.

Full to bursting with festive marvel, this story will warm the heart of readers of all ages.
