Overview

In the best tradition of Christmas stories, Father Christmas Adventures provides a celebration of the festive season, while also critiquing contemporary society. Consisting of three short tales, all involving Father Christmas, this book delivers fables with unexpected twists and encounters, resulting in a degree of novelty that is rarely seen in this genre of fiction. Starting with a light-hearted account of what happens to parents who do not believe in Father Christmas, the book then offers a story where Father Christmas shows his concern for humanity's often damaging attitudes towards the natural world. Both tales hint at darker forces at work in the world, but this darkness comes to the fore in the final story, which cleverly links Father Christmas to one of the wise men in the nativity, while also creating an entanglement with an earlier work by the author (A Father Christmas Story). Father Christmas Adventures is a festive season delight that will truly stir the Christmas spirit and leave the reader reflecting on the author's crystal clear message concerning the urgent need for all peoples of the Earth to re-engage in saving humanity from itself.
