Amelia’s tale doesn’t have quite the elemental appeal of A Boy Called Christmas – a Santa Claus origin story is a tough one to beat...But it is a worthy successor nevertheless, and certainly one to make any recipient’s Christmas a whole lot merrier.
-Guardian

Synopsis

As well as being a number one best-selling writer for adults, Matt Haig has won the Blue Peter Book Award, The Smarties Book Prize and been shortlisted three times for the Carnegie Medal for his stories for children and young adults. The idea for the A Boy Called Christmas series came when his son asked what Father Christmas was like as a boy.

Journey to the Edge of Magic

If magic has a beginning, can it also have an end? When Amelia wants a wish to come true she knows just the man to ask - Father Christmas. But the magic she wants to believe in is starting to fade, and Father Christmas has more than impossible wishes to worry about. Upset elves, reindeers dropping out of the sky, angry trolls and the chance that Christmas might be cancelled.
