Any Terry Pratchett book you know is guaranteed to be brilliant, but a Terry Pratchett Christmas book has to be something else!
Have you ever wanted Christmas to be different?
Turkey and carols, presents and crackers – they all start to feel a bit . . . samey.
How about a huge exploding mince pie, a pet abominable snowman, or a very helpful partridge in a pear tree? What if Father Christmas went to work at a zoo, or caused chaos in a toy store, or was even arrested for burglary!?
Dive into the fantastically funny world of Terry Pratchett, for a festive treat like no other. These ten stories will have you laughing, gasping and crying (with laughter) – you’ll never see Christmas in the same way again.
