The Christmas holiday is a time when families gather together. In Ralph's case, this means ten or more relatives coming to stay. Jammed into one small house for three days of merriment and family fun, with the TV on the blink and Mum on the verge of a breakdown, it soon becomes obvious that, in this house, more definitely does not mean merrier.

Anne Fine has been an acknowledged top author in the children's book world since her first book was published in the mid l970s, and has now written more than forty books and won virtually every major award going, including the Carnegie Medal (more than once), the Whitbread Children's Award, the Guardian Children's Fiction Award, the Smarties Prize and others. The Children's Laureate from 2001-2003, Anne is also very funny and young readers love her lack of hypocrisy about the family and her honesty about how people can behave. She lives in the North-East. One of the sharpest and most humorous observers of the human condition writing today for the young' School Librarian 'She is translated into 26 languages and has regularly won every major children's literary award in the land, including the Carnegie Medal twice and the Whitbread Children's Novel award twice ... There are few more influential, or more unfailingly intelligent, authors at work' Scotsman 'A subversively wicked gift for exploring family tensions' Independent


“. . . a subversively wicked gift for exploring family tensions.”
"Anne Fine at her wittiest" TES "Fine powerfully captures the chaos, frenetic activity and disharmony some families generate. The pace, humour and dramatic repartee could be those of an Alan Ayckbourn play" The Bookseller "There's a grim cast in this hilarious but barbed story of how Christmas can go so wrong for so many people" Guardian "Anne Fine works miracles with her just sharper-than-life observations" Junior Education 20041118 "A gorgeously observed tale of what Christmas can really be like" -- Katie Nicholl Daily Express 20061201
