Pascal Brissy: Le Mystère de Lord Noël (The Mystery of Mr. Christmas* Éditions Auzou 2022)
Pascal Brissy is a French children’s author. He started writing in 2003 and since then many of his works have been published. In his free time, he is involved in screenwriting and game design. The Aouzou publishing house has been producing Advent calendar books for several years, the chapters of which are perforated and can be divided into pages. With the 24 chapters, we can get to December 24, to the end of the story.
This year, one of the stories is The Mystery of Mr. Christmas, in which Nathan, Akim, Léo and his sister Léonore decide to discover the castle at the end of the street. However, the mysterious Mr. Christmas hates to be disturbed… What could he be hiding? The children must shed light on the secret if they want to save the holiday.
The volume is decorated with magical illustrations by Flavia Sorrentino – which was one of the main reasons I bought the book.
In addition to this book, there are also three other titles of this type available, which cover similarly lovely Christmas stories.
