Hogfather: (Discworld Novel 20) by Terry Pratchett
THE DISCWORLD CHRISTMAS NOVEL - with a new introduction by Tony Robinson
'Twas the night before Hogswatch and all through the house...something was missing.
The stockings are hanging ready, the sherry and pies are waiting by the fireplace - but where is the jolly fat man with his sack? It's not right to find Death creeping down chimneys and trying to say Ho Ho Ho - but someone's got to bring the little kiddies their presents. Or else they might stop believing. Belief is important in Discworld, particularly on the last night of the year when the time is turning. If the real man in the red suit isn't found by morning, there won't be a morning. Ever again...
A festive feast of darkness, jolly robins and tinsel. As they say: 'You'd better watch out...'
