Christmas magic, delivered! The top-ten bestseller and must-have festive gift, discover the joy of gift-giving in this hilarious Christmas caper from bestselling author, Ben Miller. 

All Tog wants to do is work in Santa's workshop and one wonderful day, the letter from Santa arrives: Tog has been selected as an apprentice elf! Making toys is a lot more technical and a lot less fun than Tog had imagined, and even though his new friend Holly tries to help him, he's quickly relegated to cleaning out the reindeer stables. But someone has been stealing the presents from the workshop and a case of mistaken identity finds Tog accused of being the culprit! Can Tog use his special Christmas magic to discover the real thief and save all the presents before Christmas Eve is over?

A funny and heartwarming story from the King of Christmas, Ben Miller – the perfectly sized stocking filler for all the family!
