How did I get the book? StorytellersInc Book Club
Synopsis: You are about to read the true story of Father Christmas.
It is a story that proves that nothing is impossible.
If you are one of those people who believe that some things are impossible, you should put this book down right away.
It is most certainly not for you.
Because this book is FULL of impossible things.
Are you still reading? Good. Then let us begin…
A Boy Called Christmas is a tale of adventure, snow, kidnapping, elves, more snow, and an eleven-year-old boy called Nikolas, who isn’t afraid to believe in magic.
200words (or less) review: This is a lovely Christmas story that works for children and grown up’s alike. Read it to yourself or read it aloud to an audience. The narration is engaging and so it’s easy to be halfway book before you even realise.
It’s not all wonderful though, because Nikolas doesn’t have an easy life. I think I like A Boy Called Christmas more because of this. There is a better balance. Nikolas is endearing and as a reader you feel strongly as he grows throughout the story.
I loved the world Matt Haig created and the way what you already know, for example Blitzen, the elves, etc is embraced in A Boy Called Christmas. Certainly an ideal read for this time of the year.
