Father Christmas’s Fake Beard
By Terry Pratchett
| Publisher: Doubleday Childrens

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!? BUY IT ON AMAZON

Review: It’s packed with a collection of hilarious and short stories including: The Weatherchick, Good King Wences-lost, The Blackbury Pie and a Very Short Ice Age. The Abominable Snow-Baby is my favourite because all of it is hysterically funny especially the bit when the Abominable Snow-Baby goes to the post office. One thing I liked about it was that all of the stories in it varied in subject and range of characters. This was the first book I’ve read by Terry Pratchett and this has inspired me to read more books by him.

I awarded it four stars because the stories could have been longer.
