The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig

Author: Matt HaigPublisher: CanongateGet the Book »


The second magical book in the festive series, which began with A Boy Called Christmas.


When Amelia wants a wish to come true she knows just the man to ask – Father Christmas. 

But Father Christmas has more than impossible wishes to worry about. Upset elves, reindeer dropping out of the sky, angry trolls and the chance that Christmas might be cancelled. If Christmas is going to be saved, he might not be able to do it alone . . . 

As well as being a number one bestselling writer for adults, Matt Haig has won the Blue Peter Book Award, the Smarties Book Prize and been nominated three times for the Carnegie Medal for his stories for children and young adults. The idea for the A Boy Called Christmas series came when his son asked what Father Christmas was like as a boy.
