The Girl Who Saved Christmas

Written by Matt Haig, Illustrated by Chris Mould

In the sequel to A Boy Called Christmas, Haig once again gives us a magical story with a touch of misery. Last year, Amelia’s hope in Christmas saved the day, but this year, if feels that she has lost all hope in everything. Her mother has died. She was forced into an orphanage. And on top of that, her beloved cat has been ripped away from her. Things aren’t looking so good in Elfhelm either. Despite the treaty, trolls are attacking and causing havoc. Can Father Christmas save his town, save Amelia’s dwindling hope, and finally, can he save Christmas? I thought this book was as good as the first. Once again the illustrations are delightful. Perfect choice for people looking for something new to read during the holiday season.
