Bad Brad Saves Christmas

brad-saves-christmas-fkb-coverBrad doesn’t believe in Father Christmas, and he doesn’t want anyone else to believe that nonsense either. He’s happiest when he’s making everyone else miserable. His parents aren’t bothered about Christmas either, so on Christmas Eve there’s no decorations in the house, no tree downstairs, no stocking hung up. But, whether Brad believes it or not, soon he’ll have to decide whether to stay being Bad Brad, or whether he’ll get on his bike and save Christmas. Is it worth the effort for one person? For sure! And is it better to fix badness with kindness? For Sure! There’s a very important message in this fun Christmas story from Joe Corcoran.

Exert From the Book:

Once upon a time, in a far, far distant country, there was a little boy called Brad, although no one called him just Brad. Everyone called him Bad Brad. He never said please, and he never said thank you. He never shared, and he never wanted to wait his turn.
“If you’re not good,” said his parents, “then Father Christmas will put you on the naughty list, and you won’t get any presents on Christmas Day.”
“I don’t care,” answered Bad Brad, “I don’t believe in Father Christmas.”

Well this was bad enough, but it wasn’t the worst that Bad Brad could do. He was determined that no one else should believe in Father Christmas either.
“I hope Santa will bring me a puppet theatre on Christmas Eve,” said Sally Perkins, one day in the playground.
“You’ll be lucky,” sneered Bad Brad, “Father Christmas doesn’t exist.”
“But I wrote a letter to him and everything,” wailed Sally, “I put it in the fireplace, and in the morning, it was gone.”
“Your parents probably lit the fire after you’d gone to bed,” said Bad Brad, “and the letter got burnt up all into ashes.”
