Father Christmas - Raymond Briggs
Well the Elves have quite a chuckle stocking this book however Father Christmas isn't so sure he is happy with their choice! Father Christmas says he is ALWAYS in a good mood and is never grumpy but the elves beg to differ.
Review by Barnaby the book corner elf:
A small hardback gift edition of the classic Raymond Briggs tale, about Santa Clause in grumpy mode as he goes about his annual business. Father Christmas has been a children’s favourite ever since its original release in 1973 - making kids and elves laugh with an alternative take on the jolly Santa. This smaller edition would sit snugly into any stocking.
Raymond Briggs has sold over 8.5 million copies during his career, winning many awards, including The Children’s Book of the Year, Kate Greenaway Medal and the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement.
