Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Father Christmas's Fake Beard by Terry Pratchett, read by Julian Rhind-Tutt.

Have you ever wanted Christmas to be different?

Turkey and carols, presents and crackers - they all start to feel a bit...samey.

How about a huge exploding mince pie, a pet abominable snowman, or a very helpful partridge in a pear tree? What if Father Christmas went to work at a zoo, or caused chaos in a toy store, or was even arrested for burglary!

Dive into the fantastically funny world of Terry Pratchett, for a festive treat like no other. These 10 stories will have you laughing, gasping and crying (with laughter) - you'll never see Christmas in the same way again.
