Yes, how totally ridiculous – it’s another 100 or so sleeps yet to Christmas! But many stores are already stocking their shelves and hanging up the tinsel, so it’s just as well Santa is busy behind the scenes at the North Pole. You can find out just what he, Mrs Claus, the elves and animals are up to all through December with a story each night in The CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES. This sparkly new book is available from the end of next month but here’s a sneak preview…

Cover of The Christmas Chronicles - complete with gold foil and advent style door openings.

Not many people know this, but Santa has a very bossy older sister called Maud Claus. She insists on coming to stay for Christmas but doesn’t seem to realise just how busy Santa and his wife are. They are far more concerned about a little girl in hospital in Africa, so drastic measures are called for. Then a polar bear cub arrives while a reindeer goes missing. All this time the postman keeps arriving with sacks and sacks of messages from children around the world. There’s so much to do and where has the cat gone? Like Santa, you’ll be exhausted by the time you switch off the light each night and fall fast asleep dreaming of all things cosy, cute and Christmassy.

Find out what Santa sings at bedtime each night to his trusty cat and dog, Tinsel and Sparkle. You won’t be able to resist joining in!

Hold tight as we build up to a magical sleigh ride and the wondrous night of the year when the world celebrates all that Christmas brings and means. HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all our readers!

Available from all good book shops and online – order early to avoid the Christmas rush!
