GENRE: Children aged 9 to 99

REVIEWED BY: Books4Tomorrow


Jake had been expecting a very ordinary Christmas - until he opened the curtains and saw it. All he had wished for was some snow and a bit of excitement!

Christmas Day brings chaos: news reporters, meetings with peculiar characters, a spectacular surprise at the bottom of the garden; not to mention Jake's startling discovery about his future!

Christmas will never be the same again!

A festive story for children aged 7+ and big kids too.


Out with the old, and in with the new! Santa has shiny new wheels this Christmas and what a ride it is!

This truly is a delightful little read for children aged 9 to 99. I had so much fun reading this story and after finishing it felt as excited about Christmas as any child would. From blue snow, cheeky little elves, the origin of candy canes, talking snowmen and an unusual snow globe, to Santa’s newest ride mostly likely designed by aliens, “One Strange Christmas” is a charming and fun quick read that will put the magic back in Christmas for young and old alike.

Be warned though. It will have you believing in Santa all over again!



Nicola Palmer lives in a normal, semi-detached house in Warwickshire, England, writing stories for children aged 9 - 99. 'Alice Parker's Metamorphosis' is the first book in her new fantasy adventure series.
As well as writing, Nicola's other favourite things are animals, chocolate, coffee and slippers. She's also rather fond of cake and cardigans. One day she hopes to discover hidden magical powers of her own.
