About the book

Mischievous reindeer Twinklestar has bolted – leaving his Christmas caravan to fall from the sky.

Luckily the extraordinary passengers – Niklas, a real-life Santa Claus, two angels and assorted elves – crash-land in a friendly neighbourhood where two children called Ben and Charlotte come to their rescue.

But they’re still in terrible danger. On their trail are Gerold Goblynch and his motor-sledge-riding bad Santas, a treacherous bunch from Yule Land, who will stop at nothing to steal Christmas.

Includes gorgeous, characterful illustrations from Blue Peter Book Award winner Paul Howard.

From the bestselling author of The Thief Lord, Inkheart and Dragon Rider, this is a heartwarming adventure celebrating the magic of Christmas in a funny and original way.
