Julian’s parents talk about Father Christmas all the time, but Julian thinks he’s getting too old to believe in him. Even so, to keep his parents happy, he writes Father Christmas a letter asking for a video game console, just like his cousin Patrick’s. His parents think it might be a bit expensive, but Julian is sure Father Christmas can afford it. Sure enough, on Christmas morning, there it is. But then Julian spots something another package under the tree: no one seems to know where it has come from. A charming and deceptively simple story of how a young boy is transformed by a seemingly ordinary gift, a reflection on consumerism and the power of imagination.
