This was a reread for me, as I plan to listen to [b:The Girl Who Saved Christmas|30250405|The Girl Who Saved Christmas (Christmas, #2)|Matt Haig|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1469103747l/30250405._SY75_.jpg|50718333] and [b:Father Christmas and Me|35698350|Father Christmas and Me (Christmas, #3)|Matt Haig|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1500364181l/35698350._SY75_.jpg|57190385] for the first time during December. I enjoyed this story the second time around, although parts of it sounded sappy to the ears of a middle-aged adult. On the other hand, maybe this is exactly what I needed, to remind myself there is the possibility some magic and goodness still exists in the world.

Original Review:
"Laugh, even if there is nothing to laugh about. Especially then." (How to Be Jolly: The Father Christmas Guide to Happiness)

This is my first venture into the fantasy world of Matt Haig. A tale with magic, elves, reindeer, pixies, trolls and adventure, about how a young Finnish boy named Nicholas became Father Christmas, which is skillfully narrated by Stephen Frye. I quite enjoyed the story, although I expect children would like it even more. I highly recommend the audio version.

Novela que nos hace meditar sobre la importancia de dar a la vida que tenemos su justo valor, nos hace reflexionar y nos ayuda a seguir nuestros sueños, a no ponernos limites y a avanzar por nuevos caminos.Vañorar la vida y a aquellas personas que tenemos a nuestro lado.

I was looking for some philosophical humour but by the end things just seemed depressingly hopeless & pointless. Only the super short chapters kept me going, like eating chips. I chose it randomly because I usually like animal narrators, but I should have left this one on the library shelf.
