Publisher Review

Fizzes with festive fun! -- Abi Elphinstone A heartwarming retelling of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol * Daily Mail * A well-balanced, well-told Christmas story as heartwarming as you could wish for * BookTrust * Full of Catherine Doyle's signature blend of humour, hope, and heart, this is a modern Christmas classic in the making. With clever nods to the original, Doyle's fresh take on the familiar tale will delight readers of all ages -- Katie and Kevin Tsang An absolute Christmas cracker: whip-smart, witty and warm, bursting with emotion and laugh-out-loud jokes. A classic Christmas treat reconfigured into a heartwarming family romp for the 21st century, featuring an elf on the shelf that's bad for your health. Kids and adults alike will love spotting how Doyle has ingeniously adapted the original text, but more than anything else, they'll be swept away by George's fight to bring back Christmas and save his father.

Heart-warming, incredibly funny, and action-packed, it's a story that truly captures the spirit of Christmas -- Anna James Catherine Doyle has done the impossible - she has breathed new life into this much loved and oft retold story, sprinkling it with her inimitable warmth, charm, and humour.

It is, to my mind, destined to become a Christmas classic -- Louise O'Neill A charming reimagining of one of my favourite childhood reads, managing to be both heart-warmingly familiar, and refreshingly new at the same time.
