Emily Brown and Stanley are back in this fun-filled Christmas picture book. By the author of the bestselling How to Train Your Dragon series.

It's Christmas Eve, and who's that outside the window? It's Father Christmas! In his shiny new turbo-charged sleigh, complete with sat-nav. But things aren't going quite to plan...

Can Emily Brown and Stanley save the day? They'll just need some emergency reindeer, a star map and ... MAGIC!

A charmingly funny adventure about cherishing traditions, this is classic Christmas storytelling at its best. *With a shiny gold cover!*

Written by Cressida Cowell, the bestselling author of the How to Train Your Dragon series.

Illustrated by Neal Layton, the artist behind Stanley's Stick and Danny McGee Drinks the Sea, shortlisted for the Laugh Out Loud Picture Book Award.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Any parent whose child has resisted bedtime will relate to this funny tale. - The Sun

A supremely witty take, verbal and visual, on the improbably magic of present delivery. - The Sunday Times

Cressida Cowell...is a bona fide superstar of the children's books circuit. - Huffington Post

The gorgeous story has an important message about cherishing traditions, old and new, that children everywhere will understand. A winning combination of a bunny, gifts ad enchanting illustrations ensure the Christmas magic is complete. - The Sun

A supremely witty take, verbal and visual - The Sunday Times

Deliciously droll - The New Statesman

Fabulously fun artwork from Neal Layton and a laugh-out-loud text from the author of How to Train Your Dragon, Emily Brown is a character that everyone will love. This festive tale serves as a perfect introduction to the series, or a great addition for long-standing fans. - Booktrust

Cowell is best-known for her books for older readers, but Emily Brown proves she understands younger readers and their delight in repetition, catchphrases and manageable disaster. Layton's illustrations, meanwhile, literally pop off the page, with cut-out cartoon-style characters placed upon a watercolour and pencil-sketch background in an effective collage-inspired style. - Irish Times

A story that celebrates the best of Christmas - Storytime magazine
