Father Christmas’s Fake Beard by Terry Pratchett.

November 7, 2017

Fake beardFather Christmas’s Fake Beard by Terry Pratchett. Pub. Penguin Random House, 2017.

If you have ever been out gathering winter few-ooo-well in front of good king Wencelas or sang a partridge in a Pearrrrr Treeeee, then you will love this collection of Christmas seasonal stories by the late Terry Pratchett.

If anybody can wring humour out of Christmas it is our Terry. He even puts Father Christmas on trial for public disturbance in which he pleads not guilty On the Grounds of diminished Existence. His first witness is a 7 year old boy who testifies “Everybody knows it’s just your mum or dad buying presents”.

There are other stories too including the Abominable Snow Baby and the people of Blackbury who make the biggest pie ever.

Easy to read, big font and super silly stories. What fun!!
