Book Description

Oct. 30 2012 Picture Puffins
In this hilarious sequel from Raymond Briggs, author of The Snowman and inspiration for The Snowman and Snowdog, a still rather grumpy Father Christmas decides to go on holiday. No-one needs a holiday more than Father Christmas, but where can such a well-known and easily recognized person go? Father Christmas sets off in search of his ideal holiday spot! France, Scotland and Las Vegas are his chosen destinations, but as Father Christmas discovers - there's nowhere like home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Father Christmas - off duty July 3 2000
By ana hare - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely old favorite March 5 2012
By Janna Marie Kilburn - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Holiday/Vacation book ever March 6 2013
By Chi Ginger - Published on Amazon.com
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

One of the best Christmas stories - grown ups love it as much as kids. I bought this in London. Years ago and it got worn out and lost. What a joy to get a copy again

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.
