Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas Eve, and Theo - left at home with a babysitter - sees an odd-looking star out of his window and decides to make a wish. He wishes that he had some friends to keep him company. Moments later the Christmas decorations begin to disentangle themselves from the tree behind him, ready to wreak a little havoc....

Written with generous helpings of warmth and humour, this is a story about treasuring the people and values that really matter at this time of year from master storyteller and best-selling children's author Katherine Rundell.

Katherine Rundell spent her childhood in Africa and Europe. After completing a degree course in English and a doctorate on the literary and textual afterlives of John Donne, she is now a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, where she studies Renaissance literature and climbs old buildings at night.

Critic Reviews

Praise for Katherine Rundell: "There's a gritty solidity to the horrors and the beauties, and a completely convincing depth to the characters, all of whom I loved. Katherine Rundell is now unarguably in the FIRST RANK." (Philip Pullman)
"Katherine Rundell just gets better and better. I loved The Explorer. On one level it's a very exciting adventure story of four children fighting for survival in the Amazon - but it's also saying profound things about human nature and love and loss." (Jacqueline Wilson)
