Product description

Just a few words of text bring alive Raymond Briggs’s classic picture-strip story of a grumpy old man with a heart of gold. This Kate Greenaway Medal winner is the tale of a very un-jolly Father Christmas who is not looking forward to Christmas Eve. “Bloomin’ reindeer! Bloomin’ Christmas!”, he mutters as he gets ready to deliver presents. But when Father Christmas gets home after a long Christmas Eve at work, will there be a special something waiting for him? Bringing alive a very human Father Christmas through glowing artwork and a handful of artfully-chosen words, this is a funny, touching story of how Christmas works its magic on even the grumpiest old man!
