The Boy Who Lost Christmas

Part of the Five Years, Five Months, Five Days season, celebrating the company’s fifth anniversary.

The Boy Who Lost Christmas is the touching tale of Crispin Cattermole, an unpleasant little boy who wishes an unusual wish: that there was no more Christmas…

“An impossible possibility crept into the back of his head: Christmas was gone!”

London, 1940. Crispin’s fighter pilot father hasn’t come home, and Crispin doesn’t want to have to face Christmas without him, so he wishes it away. Soon he realises that the implications are far, far bigger than him and that in a world torn apart by war, people need Christmas more than ever.
