The Girl Who Saved Christmas

(1)

JOURNEY TO THE EDGE OF MAGIC

If magic has a beginning, can it also have an end?

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

But the magic she wants to believe in is starting to fade, and Father Christmas has more than impossible wishes to worry about. Upset elves, reindeers dropping out of the sky, angry trolls and the chance that Christmas might be cancelled.

But Amelia isn´t just any ordinary girl. And - as Father Christmas is going to find out - if Christmas is going to be saved, he might not be able to do it alone . . .

Rezension
The traditional search 'n' rescue adventure, done with charm, energy and enough wit to keep even the adults who will be reading this aloud as a festive bedtime story alert . . . A lovely, warm, enveloping seasonal read Guardian

"The Girl Who Saved Christmas" is the equally amazing sequel to Matt Haig's "A Boy Called Christmas". After Father Christmas' successful first flight around the wold to gift children the previous year, all of Elfhelm is in the middle of the last preparations to do it all over again this year. But just then trolls attack their village and make it impossible for Christmas to happen. At the same time in London, Amelia (who was the first child Father Christmas visited) is taken to a workhouse and slowly loses all hope. But hope is essential because magic cannot happen without it... I already enjoyed "A Boy Called Christmas" and was looking forward to reading its sequel, which I am happy to say, I like very much, too. Since "The Girl Who Saved Christmas" follows roughly three storylines instead of just one like the previous book, it's a little bit different to read, but still very enjoyable. The parts I loved the most are the ones set in the "human world", just because Amelia and Father Christmas meet people like Charles Dickens and Queen Victoria, which is amazing. I recommend this book wholeheartedly to children aged 8 and up and am curious to see if Father Christmas' story is going to be continued in a new book next year - fingers crossed.
