A Boy Called Christmas and the Girl Who Saved Christmas
By (author) Matt Haig; Illustrated by Chris Mould
A BOY CALLED CHRISTMAS This is the true story of Father Christmas. It is a story that proves that nothing is impossible. THE GIRL WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS It is Christmas Eve 1842 and all is not well. Goodwill is decidedly lacking from Victorian London. Father Christmas’s magic powers are fading. And one very special girl has gone missing. Kindness might just win. Magic might just triumph. Christmas might just be saved.
