Father Christmas Goes on Holiday
In this hilarious sequel from Raymond Briggs, author of The Snowman and inspiration for The Snowman and The Snowdog, a still rather grumpy Father Christmas decides to go on holiday. No-one needs a holiday more than Father Christmas, but where can such a well-known and easily recognized person go? Father Christmas sets off in search of his ideal holiday spot! France, Scotland and Las Vegas are his chosen destinations, but as Father Christmas discovers - there's nowhere like home.

I think I bought this book more for me than my kids! Such lovely childhood memories of reading this book about Father Christmas - I would recommend for children aged 4+. Cute for kids to see that Father Christmas does get a holiday away from the North Pole too!show moreby Alice Gruzman
