Barry is a penguin detective with enough gumption to carry him from one end of the earth to the other and back again. When Father Christmas is kidnapped by the evil Bedbug Queen it looks like Christmas will be destroyed forever. Only the chosen one, a girl called Phoebe, can save him. But she hates Christmas... Will Barry convince her to help him? Will they reach Father Christmas before midnight strikes? Will they have the power to stop the evil Bedbug Queen?
Featuring unforgettable new songs, this is a superbly original, comical story about the importance of friendship, trust and self-belief. This audiobook features songs performed by a West End cast, including Kerry Ellis (Wicked, Les Miserables), Olivier Award nominee Michael Xavier (Sunset Boulevard West End & Broadway) and Haydn Oakley (Book of Mormon) as Barry the Penguin.
Christopher Eccleston said, 'This book is great fun, a mad and humorous adaptation of an original new musical. It has been an absolute pleasure to be part of this unique project and I look forward to seeing it all on the stage one day.' bsp;
