Summary
I had always thought Father Christmas was big, but the creature I saw was much, much smaller than any of the infants at my school. He had pointy ears, and a turned up nose, with short curly white hair stuffed under a red velvet cap. He had a white beard too, and a bit of a tummy, but he wasn't what you'd call fat. He wore an old-fashioned red velvet jacket, embroidered with green, with matching red velvet trousers and dark brown leather boots, all fringed with white rabbit fur, more or less like you see in the pictures. Suddenly it struck me. Father Christmas wasn't a person at all. He was an elf. Nine year old Jack had always wanted to meet Father Christmas. He knew all about the reindeer and the elves in the workshops, he knew where they lived and the magic that allowed him to deliver presents around the world in just one night, but there was one question he needed answered ... how did Father Christmas become Father Christmas? One Christmas Eve, Jack's wish comes true and not only does he get to meet Father Christmas but hear his incredible story... So begins, this enchanting, fairy-tale journey into the magical landscape of Torjus Christmas - a hard, cruel elf, abandoned at birth, who discovers the meaning of life and learns to love again. A charming and magical story from actor and comedian Ben Miller that will remind everyone of the true spirit of Christmas!
