Tom Fletcher Reads an Extract from The Christmasaurus Transcript

Hello Everyone at WHSmith, thank you very much for having me today. I am Tom Fletcher and I have written this book called The Christmasaurus. Today I’m going to tell you something that you might not know about the North Pole and eight of its most memorable inhabitants, Santa’s elves.

On this particularly chilly December day of digging, there were eight elves out in the ice mines underneath the snow fields of the North Pole. Their names were: Snozzletrump. Specklehump, Sparklefoot, Sugarsnout, Starlamp, Spudcheeks, Snowcrumb and Sprout.

They were very small. Just as Mr Trundle had said, only about as tall as your left knee, and they all wore the most wonderfully peculiar clothes, from dresses made of teacups to fluffy coats covered in Northern Lightbulbs. They were quite a spectacular sight. Every elf had a different but equally as important job.

Snozzletrump dug the hole. Specklehump held the lantern so that Snozzlehump could see. Sparklefoot lit the fire. Sugarsnout boiled the kettle. Starlamp made the tea. Spudcheeks toasted four crumpets (half a crumpet for each elf). Snowcrump buttered the crumpets. Sprout kept watch.

Which elf would you be? Let me know in the comments and may I be the first to wish you all a very merry Christmas, full of crumpets!
