Notes From Your Bookseller

Perfectly on brand for the dynamic duo of Aubrey Plaza and Dan Murphy, The Legend of the Christmas Witch is the eerie original Christmas fable we didn’t know we needed. We’re all familiar with Santa Claus and the joy he brings, but how many know the story of his mysterious sister? Along with their beautifully and creatively crafted tale, Julia Iredale’s illustrations solidify The Legend of the Christmas Witch as a new Christmas classic.

From Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza and creative partner Dan Murphy comes the long lost tale of the Christmas Witch, Santa Claus's much misunderstood twin sister. The perfect gift for the holiday season and beyond!

Gather ‘round the fire to hear a Christmas legend that has never been told before...until now. Each year a mysterious figure sweeps into town, leaving behind strange gifts in the night. No, not Santa Claus, but his sister…

The Christmas Witch.

Her story begins many, many years ago when her brother was torn away from her as a child. Raised alone by a witch of the woods, Kristtōrn’s powers of magic grew, as did her temper. Determined to find her long lost twin, she set out on a perilous journey across oceans to find him. But what she found instead was a deep-seated fear of her powers and a confrontation that would leave the fate of Christmas hanging in the balance.

From award-winning producer and actress Aubrey Plaza and her creative partner Dan Murphy comes a holiday story unlike any told before. With all the richness of classic folklore, they’ve woven a tale of bravery, love and magic. Whatever you thought you knew about Christmas…think again.
