It's the final day of our children's advent calendar!

Written by · Published Dec 24, 2017

It’s the last day of our children’s advent calendar for 2017. Today, stock librarian Sophie recommends Father Christmas’s Fake Beard, by Terry Pratchett and Christmas Treats, by Enid Blyton.

Father Christmas’s Fake Beard

“Have you ever wanted Christmas to be different?

“Turkey and carols, presents and crackers - they all start to feel a bit… samey.

“How about a huge exploding mince pie, a pet abominable snowman, or a very helpful partridge in a pear tree? What if Father Christmas went to work at a zoo, or caused chaos in a toy store, or was even arrested for burglary!?

“Dive into the fantastically funny world of Terry Pratchett, for a festive treat like no other. These ten stories will have you laughing, gasping and crying (with laughter) - you’ll never see Christmas in the same way again.”
