Steinar, his Right-Hand Elf, and Ola, his Left-Hand Elf, helped him to stand on the seat of his chair. Father Christmas mopped his face with his handkerchief, collected himself, and resumed his speech.

Enchanting, funny and intriguing in equal measure' Philip Ardagh on The Night I Met Father Christmas At one end of the room was a roaring fire, framed by garlands of holly, ivy and mistletoe; at the other sat Father Christmas, flanked by his Right-Hand and Left-Hand Elves. The actor, comedian and best-selling author has just released his seventh children’s book that follows the story of Father Christmas’ daughter, Holly the Toy Elf.Everything you could hope for in a silly season read. Plenty of elves, plenty of magic and a whole lot of fun! There were also some really beautiful themes along the way about fitting in when you are the 'outcast.'

The show's been going on all this time and, you know, seeing all the people that I worked with, it was really lovely. I like that this is light hearted.One thing that makes this book special is the illustrations and who detailed they are but yet so simple. I also like the little description/quote underneath the illustrations. I like that you get to meet and understand who Tog is before actually understanding what is going on and how Tog hoped to be a christmas elf but he is an hundred and sixty year old (sixteen to humans) unemployed elf.This is a fairly short read, especially as it's in diary entries, but very easy to listen to, nicely narrated by the author, a talented (voice) actor, and full of all the stuff we like at Christmas. Bubbles with warmth and mischievous humour . . . irresistible' Alexander Armstrong on The Night I Met Father Christmas Apart from his acting work, Ben has also been busy putting together his latest Christmas book, Diary of a Christmas Elf. A much-loved, longstanding star of film, television and stage, Ben is known for his role as Bough in the Jhnny English feature films alongside Rowan Atkinson. Many know him as one half of the eponymous comedy duo behind the BAFTA winning The Armstrong and Miller Show (BBC) with Alexander Armstrong. As well as starring as Richard Poole in the hugely popular Death in Paradise (BBC).

Author Luke Palmer introduces his new book, Play (Firefly Press) about four boys growing up together, the challenges, the friendships, and what hap... He said: “It’s like an advent calendar in the way that it’s designed to be read. So, the idea is the diary starts sort of roughly now and runs up to Christmas day.” Seasonal and also one to read at any time. Tog may be an elf, but he's also a little brother who wants to find his place and make his mark. He's already 160 and still hasn't got a job!
