The Carroll family love Christmas. They love it so much they celebrate it every day and in the most over-the-top way possible; Mrs Carroll has even changed her name to Snow by deed poll. Daughter Holly (of course), our central character, loves it too and does everything possible to spread good cheer wherever she goes. When the family move into their dream home, in Sleigh Ride Avenue, Holly stops being home-schooled and enrols at the local primary. Her arrival in Dickens class causes quite a stir, her new classmates don’t know what to make of her. Sadly, for a while it looks as though Holly will have all that ho-ho-ho happiness knocked out of her. Don’t worry though, she bounces back, and takes the whole community with her. There’s so much joy, happiness and laughter packed into this book that it’s certain to leave readers feeling full of festive spirit, whatever the time of year – it certainly had your normally bah-humbug reviewer whistling Jingle Bells. Holly is an irresistible character, her family a delight, there’s a guest appearance by a very distinctive donkey, and you know what, wouldn’t things be better if we did act like it was Christmas every day?

A funny, festive read about the true meaning of Christmas!

I loved The Christmas Carrolls! This book sends the message that you should just be yourself. My favourite character was Holly. I liked it when she first spoke to Mr Bleurgh as it was really funny. I also really liked the idea of the cheer-o-meter and all of Holly (and her Dads) amazing inventions, especially the talking backpack! This book is really about the true meaning of Christmas. A fantastic, festive read.... Read Full Review

I absolutely loved this book, it is funny, exciting, energetic and makes you really excited for Christmas. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves Christmas.

The Carrolls are a family that absolutely LOVE Christmas! They act like every day is Christmas.

One day the Carrolls move to a new house and start to make it as christmassy as they can. But when Holly starts at her new school the other kids think she is strange. This book is all about teaching people Christmas spirit and how they can show it 365 days a year.

I absolutely loved this book, it is funny, exciting, energetic and makes you really excited for Christmas.... Read Full Review
