    Written by Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Peter Bently and illustrated by Anna Chernyshova, Santa Selfie explains how it's not easy to relax on holiday when you're as famous as the man in the red suit.

    Wherever he goes, Santa is recognised and he's beginning to find it a struggle. All he wants is a break away from Christmas but whether he's in Paris, Sydney or at the Great Wall of China, someone always recognises him. That's a problem when you're one of the most famous people in the world...

    He can't even do his hobbies or eat his lunch without getting interrupted for a photograph. This heart-warming and funny hardback has a smart message about the perils of being famous and even comes with a pull-out photo frame so your children can see themselves in one of Santa's festive selfies.
