Back Cover Blurb
Hogswatchnight is fast approaching, and the Hogfather (that jolly fat man who delivers presents to the kiddies) is missing. But it's vital that all the presents are delivered, otherwise the sun won't rise tomorrow.

However, there is another supernatural entity who can be everywhere at once and, most importantly, knows where everybody lives. And Death reckons that with a false beard and a few cushions, it might just work. And while Death is busy working out the mysteries of climbing down chimneys and drinking sherry, it's up to Susan to track down the real Hogfather.

It's a dark time of the year. There are monsters afoot. And some of them look just like us. HO HO HO. You'd better watch out...

Terry Pratchett's bestseller, adapted and directed by Vadim Jean, is a two-part live-action/CGI film starring David Jason, to be premiered on Sky One in December 2006.

Notes
  • Hogfather was a two-part mini-series produced for Sky One, which was based on the Discworld book of the same name by fantasy author Terry Pratchett. A second Discworld production, The Colour of Magic, was produced by the same team in 2008, although actor David Jason would now be playing Rincewind rather than Albert.
