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.

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.

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
Beyond Expectations! March 2 2011

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

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
