About the Author

Raymond Briggs is one of our most respected and beloved artists. Born in Wimbledon in 1934, he studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and went on to produce a treasure trove of work. He has created characters that are now icons for generations of children, including Fungus the Bogeyman, Father Christmas and, of course, the beloved Snowman. He has won many awards over his career including the Kurt Maschler Award, The Children's Book of the Year and the prestigious Kate Greenaway Award for his Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme collection. Raymond lives in Sussex.

HASH(0xa2549204) out of 5 stars Father Christmas - off duty July 3 2000
By ana hare - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the most wonderful companion to Father Christmas, a sophisticated art cartoon offering a humanist view of the the rotund red clad benefactor of so many childrens dreams. He spends his summer hols, trotting from place to place doing his best to blend in and not be recognised. The fact that he has to use valet parking in Las Veagas for his sleigh and raindeer not withstanding. With fantstic illustrations which please year of year, it is a Raymond Briggs must have book for every family, preferably as a pair with "Father Christmas" the slightly irreverend look at Christmas deliveries and their logistical problems.

HASH(0xa25eb030) out of 5 stars Greatest Holiday/Vacation book ever March 6 2013
By Chi Ginger - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Absolutely my favorite book of my childhood. Briggs-Father Christmas the original is a close second. I wish this author and illustrator had done a few more in the series.

You know what? Don't buy it, because then there will be more copies available for me on Amazon for my friends and family

HASH(0xa24830e4) out of 5 stars Lovely old favorite March 5 2012
By Janna Marie Kilburn - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We read this book to our now 40 year old son when he was a little boy. We now have a copy to read to our grandsons. My son has learned from us to cultivate an English sense of humor, and we now hope, with the aid of this book, to encourage his sons to do the same. There's nothing quite like Raymond Briggs. He is an English National Treasure.
HASH(0xa25c0168) out of 5 stars This is one of my favorite books -- any time of year June 17 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite books -- any time of year. Brilliant, droll "travelogue" done by Father Christmas in his off-season. Captures the essence of each location visited -- cliche, yes, -- but extremely well done and wickedly funny. I love to give this as a hostess gift at Christmas.
HASH(0xa2486c9c) out of 5 stars Beyond Expectations! March 2 2011

The book arrived in mint condition, well packaged and earlier than expected. The quality was much better than expected. I would definitely do business with this vendor again.
