Usually ships within 1 week


A humorous and touching story about the magic of Christmas.

Julien’s parents talk about Father Christmas endlessly, but he doesn’t believe in him any more. Nevertheless he humours his parents and writes Father Christmas a letter asking for a video games console, just like his cousin Patrick’s. His parents think it might be a bit expensive, but Julien is sure Father Christmas can cover it. Sure enough, on Christmas morning, with his mother and father feigning surprise, there it is. Then his mother spots another parcel under the tree. It doesn’t look very exciting and no one knows where it’s come from. Julien tears the wrapping off and is delighted with what he finds.
