My Book-in-Every-Stocking suggestion is The Map to Everywhere by Carrie Ryan and John Parke Davis. It’s a rollercoaster ride of an adventure, full of magic and wonder and sheer inventive tomfoolery!
Meet Fin, the boy (and master thief!) who nobody can remember, and Marrill, the girl who stumbles upon a pirate ship in a car park and finds herself whisked away to a whole new, crazy, magical world! Together these two must find the Bintheyr Map to Everywhere before the terrifying and creepy wizard, Serth, can get it for himself and ruin everybody’s fun.
This is a wild and wonderful adventure for boys and girls – and frankly, Santa, I wouldn’t be surprised if your elves and reindeer start sneaking a peek too! In fact, you probably shouldn’t let the reindeer see it until after the deliveries or your sleigh might not even get off the ground – that’s how fun and absorbing this adventure is!
I’m sure that by sharing this book with all the children in the world – not to mention elves and reindeer – you will be giving everyone the very merriest of merry Christmases! J
Lots of love and mince pies,
