Quick Rundown:

Oops! Father Christmas was in such a rush to leave the North Pole that he picked up the wrong sack.

In this letter, he tells your child how he was speeding through the air on his sleigh, when he heard a rustling sound.  He rummaged inside his sack and discovered that instead of presents, a fat green creature was inside. It was a litterbug, a magical animal that usually lives in the Christmas House rubbish sacks. A hurried return home is in order.

More Detail:

The tone of this “The Wrong Sack” is gentle, amusing and easy-going, and while it can be enjoyed by people of all ages, it has has proved particularly popular with younger children.  The illustrations in the margins include a picture of the sleigh and reindeer, and within the letter, Santa tells the reader he has heard from his elves “that you have been very good.”  To make sure this letter sounds authentic wherever you are, Santa doesn’t refer to any special country but writes, “”My reindeer tell me we are getting very close to your part of the world,” so it doesn’t matter which country you are living in.  In a nutshell, this letter is a great all-rounder – it’s a bit of extra magic to read on Christmas Morning that we hope will make any child smile.
