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
