Father Christmas and Me

illustrated by Chris Mould

About the Book

The third instalment in the series following A Boy Called Christmas and The Girl Who Saved Christmas

When Amelia Wishart is rescued from a life of misery by Father Christmas, she imagines life will be magical and fantastic. But it isn’t always easy growing up as a human in Elfhelm. For one thing, elf school can be annoying when you have to sing Christmas songs every day—even in July—and when you fail all your toy-making tests. Also, it can get very, very cold.

Amelia knows her adopted parents—the newly married Father Christmas and Mary Christmas—care for her very much. Father Christmas is even writing a guidebook for her. But she sometimes wonders if there is more to life than eating gingerbread and decorating Christmas trees. When a very jealous Easter Bunny and his Rabbit Army launch an attack to stop Christmas, Amelia starts to realize the value of everything in Elfhelm, and joins with her new family and fellow elves to keep Christmas alive.
