The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig and Chris Mould (book review).

‘Christmas,’ said Mr Creeper and his mouth twisted as if the word had a horrid taste. ‘Christmas is only happy if you are a fool. Or a child. And you are obviously both.’ ‘The Girl Who Saved Christmas’ is the sort of book that you want to freely distribute to adults and children alike as […]
