As well as being a number one best-selling writer for adults, Matt Haig has won the Blue Peter Book Award, The Smarties Book Prize and been shortlisted three times for the Carnegie Medal for his stories for children and young adults. The idea for the A Boy Called Christmas series came when his son asked what Father Christmas was like as a boy.
Journey to the Edge of Magic
If magic has a beginning, can it also have an end? When Amelia wants a wish to come true she knows just the man to ask - Father Christmas. But the magic she wants to believe in is starting to fade, and Father Christmas has more than impossible wishes to worry about. Upset elves, reindeers dropping out of the sky, angry trolls and the chance that Christmas might be cancelled.

Glorious Modern Classic
How it builds on the world previously created by Matt Haig. Also, how Amelia overcomes a personal tragedy to help save Christmas.
It was just lovely. I 'm a 47 year old man and it whisked me back to childhood school days being read to by a favourite teacher!
Both, a little!
A great sequel to A Boy Called Christmas. It had a touch of Charles Kingsley's Water Babies to it. I wish someone would option these books and make a film of them. Done right they would become a Christmas TV staple.
