It’s the week before Christmas, and all over the blog,
The only creatures stirring are supping on eggnog.
Because the work is all done, a day off is near,
And who better than Sir Terry for tales of reindeer?
We’ll read stories of ice ages and mince pies and tea,
Of Santa’s new job and the partridge in his tree.
There will be bad jokes and weirdness and silliness galore,
So grab a cuppa, a blanket, and settle in for more…
But, in the event that you’re not really feeling the festive season, and haven’t really come across any books to convince you otherwise, I’ve got a treat for you. It’s a beautiful little book, and a perfect present for a bookworm of any age. It’s Father Christmas’s Fake Beard, by the completely wonderful Terry Pratchett, and it’s full of all the wonderful silliness he excelled in so well. It’s also beautifully illustrated by none other than Quentin Blake, and it’s till one of my favourite presents from last year.
So, are you sitting comfortably? Do you have a warm beverage to hand (spiked or not)?
Then let’s read a Terry Pratchett Christmas story…
Now tell me you’re not feeling festive after all that talk of snow and Brussels sprouts…? Are you reading any festive books this weekend, lovely people? What are they? What was your favourite present from last year? Let me know below!
