Step Farther Chistmas: A Festive Countdown in 25 chapters

In stock
Product Details

From L. D. Lapinski, the author of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency, comes a magical Christmas story about a girl who is convinced her new stepdad is actually Father Christmas. Highly recommend as a Christmas short read for year 3, year 4 and year 5, with plenty to appeal to 7 to 11 year olds.

" A heartwarming and hilarious festive story told in25 chapters - perfect for reading one at a time in the countdown to Christmas, just like an advent calendar"

10-year-old Harper lives with her mum and her older brother Will. All is happy and well, until Mum announces she is bringing her new boyfriend, Nick, home for the Christmas.

Nick is a bit... well... weird. He's impossible to annoy, always jolly, an expert at fixing toys, has a white beard and works part-time on a reindeer farm... could he be Father Christmas? Harper certainly thinks so, no matter how much her brother tells her it's nonsense - after all, after Nick arrives a reindeer shows up on the roof, a LOT of post suddenly starts coming for him, and snow falls but only seems to fill the family's back garden!

But when Nick starts spending unexplained time away from the family and keeping secrets, Harper and Will have to decide together if they really believe Nick is the big man himself.
