This Christmas the BBC are going to air the enchanting children's tale Stick Man written by Julia Donaldson. Voices will be provided by Martin Freeman (as Stick Man), Hugh Bonneville (Santa, Jennifer Saunders, Russel Tovey, Rob Brydon and Sally Hawkins.


To coincide with the Tv Movie, Magic Light Pictures are launching an App - Stick Man: Helping Santa, based on the book.

Using artwork from the book by the same creator as The Gruffalo, the app allows children to take flight with Stick Man and Santa to help deliver Christmas. They can fly Santa's sleigh and drop presents down chimneys.

As they progress they can decorate their own Christmas tree with decorations they unlock.
