Waterstones Kingston Christmas Evening: Meet Jacqueline Wilson

Explore the much-loved Magic Faraway Tree at the most special time of the year.

We are delighted to welcome bestselling author and national treasure Dame Jacqueline Wilson to our Christmas Evening, to sign copies of her new book The Magic Faraway Tree.

Milo, Mia and Birdy are excited to return to the cottage beside the Enchanted Wood for Christmas. They can't wait to visit their magical friends Silky the fairy and Moonface again. Which amazing worlds will arrive at the top of the Faraway Tree at this time of year? The children are hoping for a trip to the Land of Presents or perhaps the Land of Snow. But before they can celebrate, there is a chilling visit to the Land of the Frozen North…

In a gorgeous hardback package and beautifully illustrated throughout by Mark Beech, this is a perfect book to celebrate a special time of year, which will be treasured by Magic Faraway Tree fans of all generations.

The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton was Jacqueline Wilson's own favourite book as a young child. Now Britain's favourite contemporary children's author, creator of Hetty Feather and Tracy Beaker, is revisiting it in her second wonderful book about this magical world.

Tickets: £14.99 and will include a copy of The Magic Faraway Tree. One ticket includes one book for collection on the day and entry for a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children. All children must be accompanied by at least 1 adult.

Book your tickets here.

Please note that Jacqueline will only be signing copies of her Magic Faraway Tree novels (The Magic Faraway Tree: A New Adventure and The Magic Faraway Tree: A Christmas Adventure) at this event.
