It is Christmas Eve and Father Christmas is preparing to set off on another round-the-world delivery trip. This year, for the first time his grandson Sam is going too. It will be a night to remember, Father Christmas says. But Sam is not so sure. His boots are too big, the weather is too cold and, anyway, he would much rather be at home, watching a film! Join Father Christmas and his reluctant young helper on an eventful and surprising sleigh ride. Dyan Sheldon's titles include "The Whales' Song" which won the Kate Greenaway Medal.
