About the Book

Dive in to this funny and debut heart-warming magical (and musical!) adventure from star of stage and screen, Matt Lucas – a festive modern classic for young readers of 8-12!

‘Nearly as good as one of my books’ – David Walliams

Leo LOVES Christmas.

And this Christmas needs to be absolutely perfect, because it’s the first one without Mum. Only it all keeps going wrong!

???????? The fairylights are in a tangle

????✏️ The Christmas cards aren’t finished

???? The tree isn’t decorated

???? And the Christmas cakes have all been destroyed!

Soon Leo decides he’s had enough – he makes a heartfelt wish that it would all GO AWAY.

Then Leo wakes up on what SHOULD be Christmas Day – and it’s gone!! All of Christmas! But Leo isn’t going to let it escape that easily . . .

Join Leo as he sets out on a mission to undo his wish and get Christmas back in the brand-new festive classic by bestselling author Matt Lucas.

Home Alone meets A Christmas Carol in a hilarious adventure with a big dollop of festive magic. Funny, sensitive and emotional in all the best ways, this warm and seasonal family story touches ever so gently on childhood grief but is wrapped up in a chaotic and heart-warming adventure.

Listen to over 20 original songs, written and recorded by Matt to accompany the story, bringing the joy of a musical to book form!
