Book in Every Stocking Suggestion by Emma Perry - The Boy Called Christmas by Matt Haigh and Chris Mould

Today's Book in Every Stocking Suggestion to Santa is about Santa, picked by Book reviewer, writer and Golden Egger, Emma Perry.

Dear Santa,

This year I'd love you to add a sprinkling of Christmas cheer by popping a copy of The Boy Called Christmas - Matt Haigh (words) & Chris Mould (illustrations) -  in to as many stockings as possible.

Why? Well Santa, it tells your story - and what could be better than that? 

It tells of your humble beginnings in that wooden hut with your turnip toy. With great pace it retells your adventurous journey to Elthem - the elves you met there and the struggles you went through to help them see the beauty in kindness. I loved how it showed your own personal journey to discover what you were truly destined for. 

What a magical, Christmas tingling story it is, especially with those illustrations from Chris Mould peppered through out. He really caught your best side don't you think?

Don't be bashful Santa, this sparkly blue book telling 'the true story of Father Christmas' will look quite magnificent in plenty of stockings.

With love & bookish wishes,

Emma Perry
