Father Christmass Fake Beard
Father Christmass Fake Beard | Terry Pratchett
30 posts | 7 read | 11 to read
Have you ever wanted Christmas to be different? Turkey and carols, presents and crackers - they all start to feel a bit . . . samey. How about a huge exploding mince pie, a pet abominable snowman, or a very helpful partridge in a pear tree? What if Father Christmas went to work at a zoo, or caused chaos in a toy store, or was even arrested for burglary!? Dive into the fantastically funny world of Terry Pratchett, for a festive treat like no other. These ten stories will have you laughing, gasping and crying (with laughter) - you'll never see Christmas in the same way again.

One of my favorites, given my penchant for Sir Terry and Hogswatch. These are Pratchett stories for children, so there‘s not a lot of depth or Discworld to them, but they‘re enjoyable all the same.
And I‘m a sucker for a slipcase.

Soubhiville Sweet kitty. Does she want her belly rubbed, or will she slice up your hand if you try it? I have one that loves belly rubs. 3y
ju.ca.no @Soubhiville for a short time she loves it, if you rub too long you might loose your hand😂😂 3y

Very cute and entertaining Christmas stories by Terry Pratchett. This book will suit the whole family and might will get your kids into the Discworld books. Even though not set on the Discworld many readers will might find traces of it in some of the stories :)

TheSpineView This would make a great read for the #WinterGames. Stacked! 3y
Jari-chan @TheSpineView Defenitely! Have fun 😊 3y
LiljaPleasant Ohhh I was thinking about buying it. Would you say I'd like it, now that I kinda found out I like Pratchett? Need some more christmasy books for next month 😊 3y
Jari-chan @LiljaPleasant I'd say you'll like it. One doesn't have to be into Pratchett that much to enjoy this book. Also, a good one to read to your ducklings 😊 3y
LiljaPleasant @Jari-chan Sounds great!!! 3y

I just found out about this book and now I feel like I have to buy it. I‘m just not yet sure - buy it for me/my dad or as a present for a 9 year old family friend. 🤔🤔🤔 Though choices! (I‘ll probably buy it for myself and my dad and if it is as great as I expect next year as a present)

Avanders I like your plan 😊😊 3y
ju.ca.no @Avanders I already changed it to buying it twice this year😂 3y
Avanders 🤣 I also like that plan! 😁 3y

Zoomed through this this evening. A great, funny story collection for those 7+ (any younger and they may not get the humour)
Amazing illustrations. 5 stars

Wowowowowow! @PenguinInFlight gets me. What a lovely and thoughtful selection of gifts (and my first librarian mug!!)! The bookmarks both made me giggle. I haven‘t read any of those books—and can‘t wait to dig in next week when the university is closed. Plus, planner stuff and (vegan!) lip balm!! A++++ secret Santa-ing. ❤️❤️❤️ #SecretSantaGoesPostal #WinterSolsticeBookExchange

Arggg!!! So I ordered something from Etsy the day I got my match for #secretsantagoespostal, the shipment was stuck somewhere so I contacted the seller. She told me she‘d send me another package and now it hasn‘t even been dropped off to the post office. I may just send my package out and if I ever get what I ordered I can send it separately. At this point I‘m so frustrated I might just cancel the order. Uhhh!!!!

LibrarianRyan I hate when that happens. I'm still waiting on my book outlet shipment. It hasn't even shipped yet and the shipping date has changed twice. 5y
Mdargusch So annoying! 5y
AmyG It's very frustrating. I waited almoat a month for an item for the Halloween swap. 5y

megt That‘s so frustrating! I had to cancel an order for some items I picked for my match (not from Etsy) because even though the they were listed as shipping in 2 days, I followed up a week after I had placed my order and it was going to be another 10 days before they shipped. So disappointing. 5y
eanderson @LibrarianRyan I could even imagine the frustration with that! I would be to the point of emailing and getting mad. 😟 @Mdargusch it really is! @AmyG holy moly! That stinks! @megt that's awful.... I contacted the seller the first time and she said she would rush the order and it would be 1-3 days for shipping but she created a label and that was it. It's been 3 days since she created the label... 😕 5y
Itchyfeetreader I am in this place with 2 items ... 5y
megt Ugh. My fingers are crossed that you get an update soon! 5y
Gissy Calm 💆🏻this is for fun. It will arrive and if not your match will understand! Maybe some magic will work just believe! 🎅🏼 5y

My entree into Pratchett! Can‘t wait for 12/1 when we start our advent reading. 🎄 📚📚 I read just the first 2 pages and his wit is right up my alley. And the illustrations? So so fun! On nearly every page, which will delight me & kids. I feel like I won the lottery.

laurieluna 🙌 yey! The deluxe is so worth it. 😄 5y
Tamra Yes!! Was that you who was my “enabler?” 😂 (edited) 5y
laurieluna @Tamra yep 😂 and I may have also infected @Avanders with the need for it too! 5y

[DELETED] 3803335244 I love this! Haven‘t read but looks so good! We are adding a few new books to our 24 books too! I love Christmas 🎄 Thanks for the recommendation!!! 5y
Tamra @ForeverNerdy 👏🏾👏🏾 Do you have any favorites we should add? We have more than 24 already, so what‘s a few more??? 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Here are our favorites that are non religious 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 This one is beautifully illustrated! 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 More religious books 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 This one is beautiful but I don‘t see it added on litsy The Symbols of Christmas by Rachelle Pace Castor 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 My kids really love all those! We are slowly adding books. I hope to buy 2-3 more this year. We have a few more & last year we checked out some great ones from the library but I can‘t remember them. If you have other Christmas book suggestions for us, I would love it! I‘m ok with religious books. 5y
Tamra @ForeverNerdy Mooseltoe is hilarious! (edited) 5y
Tamra @ForeverNerdy terrific suggestions! I‘ll be looking for them. 😁 I‘ll take a look at ours this weekend and pick a few special favorites. I mentioned Bad Kitty Christmas that is super heart warming - all about kindness. You should be able to get it from the library. 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Thank you! I‘m thinking I‘m going to get bad kitty books for my daughter for Christmas. We always do something to wear, something to read, & something to play with. She put any book that is funny. On her list! Gotta love Christmas! It‘s my favorite time of year! 5y

laurieluna @Tamra it is a must have. So colourful inside too! The artwork is brilliant and the dedication brought a tear to my eye. 5y
Avanders {dontlookdontlookdontlook} everything you say is toooo tempting ... 😳 But I‘ve been... and I bought myself this beautiful Christmas book that I can‘t really afford 😬 *and* my #booktoteswap recipient something! 🤑🤗 Thanks again for the link! ☺️♥️ 5y
Tamra @miralunasbooknook what is the difference between the deluxe edition and regular hardback? Do you know? 5y
laurieluna @Tamra the deluxe has a slipcase and all the illustrations are in full colour. The regular hardback is just black and white. X 5y
Tamra @miralunasbooknook I think I figured it out - the artwork is in color. Is there 1 per story or more? Also, have you read any of his other children‘s books and if so, what would you recommend? 5y
laurieluna @Tamra I'll get some pics when the kids are abed, they're fantastic! 5y
Tamra @miralunasbooknook we crossed messages! 😂 5y
Tamra @miralunasbooknook 👍🏾👍🏾 yes please! I‘m sure I‘ll have to order after seeing them. 5y
laurieluna @Tamra pretty much on every page. The stories are only short, the illustrations bulk it out a lot. 5y
Tamra @miralunasbooknook ohhhh, sounds like the price difference is worth it! 5y
laurieluna @Tamra lots of crossed messages 😂 I've read his tiffany aching series (wee free men) and dragons at crumbling castle and loved them. Going to be getting the others eventually. 5y
laurieluna @Tamra definitely! 5y
Tamra @miralunasbooknook I just saw the Dragon one & it prompted me to ask. Would it be good for 7 & 10? Illustrations? (edited) 5y
laurieluna @Tamra I'd say so. I have the normal hardback (missed out on the deluxe) but it still has illustrations throughout to accompany the short stories. The usual Terry wit but suitable for children 😁 5y
