The Girl Who Saved Christmas

Matt Haig, illustrated by Chris Mould
NZD $22.99

The next magical book in the festive series, begun with A Boy Called Christmas, from Number One bestselling author Matt Haig.

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 . . .
