136. Father Christmas and Me by Matt Haig

Let the battle for Christmas begin . . .

Amelia lives in the magical town of Elfhelm, newly adopted by Father Christmas and Mary Christmas. When the very jealous Easter Bunny launches an attack to ruin Christmas, it’s up to Amelia, her family and the elves to fight off the forces of evil.

But can they keep Christmas alive?

Paperback | 304 pages

I can’t believe this is the last book! How am I going to feel Christmassy after it’s over? I’m so happy Amelia’s story is progressing, can’t wait to see where it goes.

Very easy to read and very easy to get hooked into.

I wondered a lot about Amelia at the end of the last book, so it was wonderful to see her story continue. Amelia grew in this story from feeling displaced to finding her place. I thought her story was done with such kindness and creativity and really captured the essence of what she was going through. Father Vodol has got to be the sneakiest and grumpiest elf there is. I’d love to read a book explaining why he was so bitter and angry about everything.

Easy to visualise and imagine, illustrations and details painted a happy picture.

Matt Haig has done it again – three times in a row!!! – I liked that there was still room to grow in this story and that the Easter Bunny was roped in also.

I loved it! Finished reading it on Christmas Day. Was the perfect day to read this on.
