After the amazing success of 2020 with over 3,500 copies sold, the Finding Nutmeg childrens book is already a new Christmas Eve tradition in many Irish households! This is exactly what The Santa Experience and one of its creators, Greg Clarke, have aimed for with their festive book.

This beautifully illustrated children’s book details the story of one boy’s magical adventure to the North Pole. After finding a magical coin outside his grandad’s workshop, Sean embarks on a mission to return it to its rightful owner: Nutmeg the Elf. Join Sean on his journey to find Nutmeg as he meets elves, reindeer and even a talking snowman along the way—all while learning about the importance of helping and giving (the true qualities of an elf!).

The Finding Nutmeg childrens book was written by Limerick native, Greg Clarke, with illustrations by Des Langford and colour by Deborah Hilbert, Finding Nutmeg’, is a timeless tale that’s sure to bring the whole family together. 

Speaking about the inspiration behind the book, Greg, who is the Managing Director of The Santa Experience, said the book is the product of a lifetime love for everything festive, as well as his experiences interacting with thousands of families and witnessing their joy and happiness as they visit Santa at one of their locations.

He said: “I grew up in a house where Christmas was a big deal – and retrieving the giant box from the attic once a year was an eagerly anticipated moment. The night spent decorating the entire house from carefully drawn blueprints was the best family fun.

“’Finding Nutmeg’ came from a love of Christmas and knowing what makes a Christmas experience authentic, genuine and magical. We have learned this not only from years of creating and building The Santa Experience but also from interacting with thousands of families and seeing children’s reactions as they journey through the North Pole on their way to visit Santa.”

“We were bowled over with the success and amazing feedback from parents and children alike who loved the story and detailed illustrations. It was great to be able to bring some authentic Christmas cheer to families during lockdown and Dunnes Stores have been an amazing supportive partner allowing us to distribute the books nationwide”, Greg added.

Finding Nutmeg’ is available to purchase from selected Dunnes Stores as well as Dunnes Stores’ online shop HERE
