8pm, 8th Dec 2020 – A Boy Called Christmas Book by Matt Haig

A Boy Called Christmas is a tale of adventure, snow, kidnapping, elves, more snow, and a boy called Nikolas, who isn’t afraid to believe in magic.

Illustrator Chris Mould deserves a special mention: his vibrant, inky drawings bring the characters and the world of the story to visual life and create extra layers of humour. I should add that this is a purely secular tale, with no baby Jesus in sight. But it’s suitable for children from nine to 99, and now added to my list of Christmas classics. I may never mutter “Bah, humbug” in quite the same way again.
