No-one loves yuletide like Hank Zipzer and this year, with a new baby brother on the way, Hank means to have the Best. Christmas. Ever! But Hank's life never runs smoothly and soon Miss Adolf is turning Mr Rock's Rudolph the Rock'n'Roll Reindeer into a one-woman Christmas Carol.

In the run up to Christmas, two school inspectors get injured in a bizarre sleighing accident, Mr Joy tries to cancel Christmas altogether, Stan and Papa Pete battle over the new baby's crib, Emily tries to run Rosa's pregnancy like CERN runs the Large Hadron Collider, oh and Hank finds himself in love with world-renowned US popstar Hayden Chase after crashing her video shoot while on a pickle-based mission of mercy for Rosa.

In his attempt to drag triumph from the glittering jaws of doom, Hank will ice skate into disaster, nearly crash a Christmas tree into a crowd, get himself and his best friends Frankie and Ashley arrested, get his favourite teacher sacked and lose the love of his life. This time, he really has let everyone down. Surely even Hank can't get out this one. Luckily for us, there's no way to tell Hank that.
