A lovely Christmas story

So how did Father Christmas get to be who we know today, this story answers that question. Suitable for pretty much any age. Youngsters will appreciate the flying reindeer who lives to pee on people and adults will love a well told, and well read, tale

A christmas cracker

A wonderful story filled with adventure and humour. Stephen Fry's narration brings it to life too!

What made the experience of listening to A Boy Called Christmas the most enjoyable?

My daughter and I loved this book. We had listened to the 2nd book The Girl Who Saved Christmas first, without realising they came in order. It didn't spoil this book for us though as they are truly wonderful books.
Stephen Fry is the perfect Narrator for this book.

What other book might you compare A Boy Called Christmas to, and why?

I can't think of a book to compare to, but I can compare authors. In my opinion I would say Neil Gaiman and Matt Haig have similar quality to their writing which so many children's books do not have.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Fry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, and he's amazing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Nicholas saw a side to his papa he never believed to be possible.

Any additional comments?

MANY MORE please!
