Another cracker...

In 1973 Raymond Briggs depicted Father Christmas as a miserable git who felt well put out by everyone and everything. It's a great comic.

It was no surprise when Briggs declared that he hated Christmas a couple of years ago on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs. This book is enjoyable because Father Christmas' bad attitude is presented with Briggs' art, which looks so...warm and inviting. You would give this to a kid quite happily.
