Father Christmas (40th anniversary edition)

See all formats and editions

Join Father Christmas on his busiest night of the year in this 50th anniversary edition of the hilariously irreverent Christmas classic!Raymond Briggs, creator of The Snowman, introduces us to a rather grumpy Father Christmas in this brilliantly tongue-in-cheek festive tale. Father Christmas has awoken from a dream of summer sun to discover it is December 24th, Christmas Eve - the start of his longest night's work of the year!

Much merriment ensues as Father Christmas travels the world, with a few issues along the way, to bring joy to children everywhere. Published 50 years ago, this delightful - and delightfully cheeky - classic story has lost none of its charm.

This book was awarded The Library Association's Kate Greenaway Medal. More brilliant Raymond Briggs stories:Father Christmas Goes on HolidayThe Snowman - a wordless picture book
