So she’s moved in with us - along with her annoying son Freddie and her Christmas Angel. He can’t stand our Tinsel Elf because they both have such different ideas about what Christmas should be like. But we only discover this when our biscuits stick to the table and all kinds of other crazy things start to happen. The pair of them go on to create far more Christmas chaos than Freddie and I do. Now it looks as if Christmas is going to have to be cancelled - even though I’ve spent months making Dad the best present in the universe. How on earth are we going to get Christmas back on track?
