Jingle bells, Jingle bells, smelly poo and bum!
You can wait for Christmas but it's never going to come!

When a miniature reindeer named Percy falls down the chimney of the Trubshaws' holiday cottage, the last thing they expect is to be whisked away to the distant planet of Yule-1 - the REAL home of Father Christmas, the elves, and his intrepid reindeer delivery teams. And what an amazing place it is - nobody minds being stuck there until the computer system has been mended.

But the festive season is in danger! One rogue reindeer has teamed up with the evil Krampus to sabotage everything. Unless Percy and his new friends can track them down, there will be no Christmas this year - or EVER AGAIN!

Illustrated in black and white by Neal Layton, this is destined to become a holiday favourite.

She began with the Belfry Witches series, packed with humour and magic, themes that have remained throughout her stories. Kate was a contributor to the 2016 Winnie the Pooh official sequel. Her latest two novels, Five Children on the Western Front and The Land of Neverendings have received rave reviews and awards accolades. Five Children won the Costa and was shortlisted for the Guardian Prize. Both were shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal and heralded again and again as the best books of the year by fellow authors and national publications alike. Living in London, Kate is a true storyteller and her magical, wickedly hilarious novels allow young readers to escape their everyday lives into wonderful worlds where they are empowered to explore and enjoy themselves. She is a national treasure.

This mash-up of Star Trek and The Night Before Christmas (plus a bit of Dambusters) is a box of delights for both children and adults.
