About the Book

A delightfully witty and tender-hearted Christmas story like none other, introducing a unique author and illustrator collaboration to make for a very special Little Gem.

Jo-Jo is convinced that Christmas is cancelled – and it's all his fault. To make amends, he decides he must become Father Christmas. An old coat of his mum's, a sack of outgrown toys and a sudden snowfall are all he needs – along with a little help from some very Christmassy magic. High quality cream paper and a special easy to read font ensure a smooth read for all.
