Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Him With The Beard
Author: Pernille Meldgaard Pedersen
Genre: Chicklit, Christmas
Publication Date: 10th October 2018
Estimated Page Count – 40
This is a very quick festive read centred around believing in Santa Claus. It starts with nine-year-old Millie professing to no longer believing, much to the chagrin of her mother, Stella, who loves everything to do with the festive season and Santa – even working as one of his helpers in a local Mall. Millie’s disbelief triggers Stella to search to prove his existence and she inadvertently uncovers family secrets whilst doing so and is forced to reconsider her own beliefs. These revelations take away her joy and it is only through the actions of her family that Stella and her family can once more appreciate the festivities and their belief in Santa Claus!
This is a delightful story of renewing beliefs, appreciating the positives in your life and bringing joy to yourself and others. It is a lovely festive read, ideal to escape into when you’re feeling too fraught by the pressures of the season and need to reconsider your beliefs and priorities. I loved the heroine of the story proving that love can find a way 🙂
I requested and was gifted a copy of this festive read and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Do you remember that moment you stopped believing in Santa Claus?
When nine-year-old Mille suddenly no longer believes in Santa Claus, it turns the house upside down.
Her mother, Stella, is in a pickle as the hunt to find Santa Claus unearths some family secrets.
Christmas is at risk!
And there’s only one person who can save it.
Pernille was born in 1988 and loves that she was born in the decade with the tallest hair, the most colourful clothes, and the best music.
Her imagination never stands still, and it’s often expressed in words and pictures.
She wrote her first story when she was six years old. It was about the cat she unfortunately never got but wished for more than anything.
She loves autumn and Christmas and believes in elves.
From day to day she is a knight in training, an animator, and a secret agent – she has saved the world a few times by now.
She’s also a professional daydreamer.
She thinks the recipe for a good book is the same as the one for having a good life – a sense of kinship, humour, love, and that one thing that gives you a daily smile.
Vestercity is a fictional city based on her upbringing near the city of Herning in Denmark.
