Summary

It isn't always easy growing up as a human in Elfhelm, even if your adoptive parents are the newly married Father Christmas and Mary Christmas. For one thing, Elf School can be annoying when you have to sing Christmas songs every day - even in July - and when you fail all your toy-making tests. Also it can get very, very cold.

But when the jealous Easter Bunny and his rabbit army launch an attack to stop Christmas, it's up to Amelia, her new family and the elves to keep Christmas alive. Before it's too late....

Technical Issue Spoils a Great Story

There is no gap between each chapter. Not even a second. It detracts from a great narrator and a wonderful story. I hope Audible can fix it.

Not as good as the first 2 books

Whilst I still enjoyed this sequel it did not capture me as much as the previous 2 stories. The narrator was excellent though and livened up an otherwise often quite dull tale. The last few chapters were more interesting however but it took some persistence to get there.

The audio editing had some issues too. There were no spaces before the next chapter so the chapter titles almost overlapped with the end of the precious chapter. There’s also a section in the middle which almost completely repeats the previous chapter.

Overall a bit disappointing but maybe that’s just because I enjoyed the first two so much.

Another Modern, Christmas Classic

It amazes me that Hollywood still constantly churns out average Christmas films when you have books like Matt Haig's Christmas trilogy to adapt... These books have kept my family entertained over the last few festive periods as we shuttled around town visiting family and friends. A touching but not a saccharine listen, with a great narration, make them part of your family Christmas tradition.

Father Christmas and Me

My son and I enjoyed this story (the third book in the series) a lot. However we had a few issues with this recording... First of all, we both found it quite annoying that several names were pronounced differently between this book and the one before it (The Girl Who Saved Christmas). I understand that they were read by 2 different readers - but the pronunciation of names should not change. Secondly, there seems to be a technical glitch in the recording. In chapter 12, the recording repeats a big section of the preceding chapter. It’s quite weird, and caught us off guard - but we listened to the whole 2 chapters again and the same thing happened! Other than that, we enjoyed the performance a lot.
