A little miracle of a story . . . Fizzes with magic and joy. A wintry wonder of a book -- Abi Elphinstone
An absolute Christmas cracker: whip-smart, witty and warm, bursting with emotion and laugh-out-loud jokes. A classic Christmas treat reconfigured into a heartwarming family romp for the 21st century, featuring an elf on the shelf that's bad for your health. Kids and adults alike will love spotting how Doyle has ingeniously adapted the original text, but more than anything else, they'll be swept away by George's fight to bring back Christmas and save his father. I utterly loved it -- Ross Montgomery

Both a celebration of a Christmas classic while also being a magical adventure all of its own. Heart-warming, incredibly funny, and action-packed, it's a story that truly captures the spirit of Christmas -- Anna James

Catherine Doyle has done the impossible - she has breathed new life into this much loved and oft retold story, sprinkling it with her inimitable warmth, charm, and humour. This vividly exciting and poignant retelling made me believe in magic as fervently as I did when I was a child. It is, to my mind, destined to become a Christmas classic -- Louise O'Neill

A charming reimagining of one of my favourite childhood reads, managing to be both heart-warmingly familiar, and refreshingly new at the same time. It's filled with miracle-making curiosities, a delightfully bonkers cast, a purple reindeer with a grudge, and a quest to mend two very broken hearts. All-in-all, a magical whirlwind of an adventure filled with heart, hilarity, and miraculous mayhem -- Hana Tooke

Full of Catherine Doyle's signature blend of humour, hope, and heart, this is a modern Christmas classic in the making. With clever nods to the original, unforgettable new characters, and hilarious escapades, Doyle's fresh take on the familiar tale will delight readers of all ages. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and most of all you'll feel like a child discovering the magic of Christmas -- Katie and Kevin Tsang

Delightfully festive . . . Warm, imaginative, and brimming with Christmas magic -- Carlie Sorosiak
This reimagining of A Christmas Carol is simply spellbinding. * iNews *
