“This book is great fun, a mad and humorous adaptation of an original new musical. It has been an absolute pleasure to be part of this unique project and I look forward to seing it all on the stage one day.”
The book includes many of the songs from the stage musical and a host of West End performers have stepped in to record them for us on the accompanying audio CD also featuring narration by Christopher Eccleston.
Barry is a penguin detective with enough gumption to carry him from one end of the earth to the other and back again. When Father Christmas is kidnapped by the evil Bedbug Queen it looks like Christmas will be destroyed forever. Only the chosen one, a girl called Phoebe, can save him. But she hates Christmas… Will Barry convince her to help him? Will they reach Father Christmas before midnight strikes? Will they have the power to stop the evil Bedbug Queen?
