The First Christmas Jumper by Ryan Tubridy - animated trailer

The First Christmas Jumper

Ryan Tubridy loves Christmas jumpers. He loves them so much he wrote this book – the story of the very first Christmas jumper. It’s got sheep, jelly babies, tractors, Santa Claus, Christmas elves and a LOT of sheep puns… Ewe will love it!

The story of the very first Christmas jumper and the multi-coloured sheep that started it all!

There are two things you need to know about Hillary the sheep. One – Unlike her typical white or brown friends, Hillary’s wool is all the colours of the rainbow. Two – she loves Christmas. She loves everything about it, especially Santa. When news gets out that Mr Claus himself is travelling across all of Ireland, looking for the perfect sheep’s wool to make a brand new jumper, Hillary’s head begins to spin… Could her wool-dest dreams come true? With back-chatting sheep, a jelly baby-obsessed farmer and a choir of Elvish Presley singing elves, this is a truly wild, laugh out loud adventure all about the creation of the very FIRST Christmas jumper.
