I loved the first book so much that I just had to buy the sequel as soon as it came out! This is a bit more Christmassy than the first one (featuring Father Christmas) so it's probably best done as a late Autumn topic and considered in parallel with, not isolation from, the first book.

Matt Haig my favourite writer! The truth pixie Christmas book, makes me cry every time I read it. I guess, you can imagine, how excited I got when I heard Matt had written another.
The truth pixies goes to school, doesn’t disappoint in making me cry again. I know it’s a child book and I should know better. But the book show children what anxiety is and that “it’s okay to not be okay.” And those who suffer that you not alone in how your feeling.

Clearly I am not the target audience for this book but I enjoyed it regardless. Matt Haig is a wonderful writer and this has so many positive and uplifting messages. I can't believe any child would dislike this.

My one niggle and the reason for dropping a star is that it felt like the author was trying to wedge in messages that didn't fit with the story.

A gorgeously written story about the power of friendship, truth and lies. I love these books so much. This is going to be something I read and use in the classroom for years to come!

I listened to Olivia Colman read the audio book of this sequel as she did on the first book. She’s fabulous and so is this delightful book!

A really lovely book that I wish I had when I was young. Some really special life lessons that I think all kids should know are in this book and I'd love to share with so many people.
