    At the Book People we have picked out our favourite Christmas books, which we feel will make beautiful presents for all the family. If you're looking for the perfect gifts, or even if you're just looking for gift ideas, visit our Christmas Shop to find an even more festive titles.

    If you know a little one who is getting excited for the visit of Father Christmas, they will absolutely adore this interactive book - which lets them take control of Santa's real (well, velcro...) beard and stick it onto a variety of funny faces throughout the pages.

    During the summer months, Santa decides his beard is just too fluffy and warm to deal with, but the Beard has something to say about that: "Don't worry, Santa. I'll just find a new face." And off he goes...

    The Beard finds a number of new faces, but none seem to quite fit or want him - certainly not the baby in the pram, the princess in her castle or the pirate at sea. Will he find the right face?

    With Nick Sharratt's distinctive and bright illustrations and gentle flowing text, Matilda Tristram and Tom Duxbury's Santa's Beard is a real Christmas cracker!

    The debut novel from award-winning YouTube phenomenon Zoella (or Zoe Sugg), Girl Online is a semi-autobiographical tale of romance that tackles many of the issues that modern teens have to deal with today - such as cyber bullying, self-esteem and anxiety.

    Penny has a secret. She's the girl behind GirlOnline, an online teen lifestyle blog where she anonymously 'pens' the goings on of her life: school dramas, boys, her mad family - and the panic attacks that she has been suffering from lately. As the panic attacks worsen, Penny's parents take her on a trip to New York where she meets Noah, a guitar-wielding heartthrob, and Penny soon starts to fall in love. But Noah has a secret too, and this secret could ruin Penny's cover...

    Having established herself as a big sister to the 6 million plus subscribers on her Zoella YouTube channel, Zoe Sugg's Girl Online is a compelling story of a modern girl who readers aged 11 and above will both sympathise and associate with.
