Request a sampler of Anthony McGowan’s I Killed Father Christmas.
Jo-Jo’s mum and dad are arguing again – but this time it’s on Christmas Eve and Jo-Jo’s convinced it’s all his fault. He’s been spoiled, selfish and greedy – and his badness has actually killed Father Christmas. To make amends, Jo-Jo decides that he must be Father Christmas – and so he fills sacks with his old toys and puts on Mum’s long red coat. But then a magical encounter with the real Father Christmas shows Jo-Jo that the true message of Christmas is the giving of love, not of gifts.
