Join Father Christmas on his busiest night of the year in this hilariously irreverent Christmas story!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 over 40 years ago, this delightful – and delightfully cheeky – classic story has lost none of its charm.
