Fiction Fridays : Santa is coming to Manchester

@homedad has come up with a cracking idea called 'Fiction Fridays'. It's all about the favourite books we read our kids. You can learn more about it and join in here - Fiction Fridays

My choice for this week is 'Santa is coming to Manchester'.  We bought this book for O. at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) on our recent trip to Manchester. It's been a regular bedtime story choice since and I'm sure it'll get even more popular in the run up to Christmas. It's also a great memory of a fantastic day out.

The opening line is - "Well?" boomed Santa. "Have all the children from Manchester been good this year?"


  1. What a brilliant title for a book!!

  2. That sounds great, I'll have to check it out!
    The Xmas books are starting to come out here too, a little too soon for my liking!
    Thanks for taking part in Fiction Fridays, looking forward to next week now!

  3. What a great idea. We have a little bedtime ritual of our 3 year old reminding us every night what Santa can bring down the chimney - we might need to add "if all the children in Chennai have been good this year".

  4. Thanks for the comments all. Menai, love the bedtime ritual.
