Home Kids A summer Christmas story at last!

A summer Christmas story at last!

He was dressed in red trousers and a white sleeveless vest. He didn’t have gloves on, …and as for the rest?

It was too hot for his hat and his wintery tops. Even his boots were swapped for flip flops!

Mother of three Jules Belasyse-Smith got tired of explaining to her confused children that ‘no, there’s no snow, but yes, Father Christmas is coming.’

“All the Christmas books on the shelves in all the book shops are all about snow, the northern hemisphere, cosy nights and associated non-relatable content.  I’ve never found anything that I can read my kids that tells the story from a different perspective,” she says.

And so she wrote her own Christmas book. ‘Twas The Night Before A Summer Christmas is a light-hearted take on a much-loved classic,  and tells the story of Santa’s Christmas Eve journey to a house in the southern hemisphere. It’s just lovely … the perfect book to read to your children on Christmas eve. R150, directly from Jules on 082-377-2009 or [email protected].
