It's Christmas Eve and an old woman lies in the snow. She is exhausted by her efforts to make money for food when a vandal on a motorbike robs her of the little she has scraped together. But this is the time of year for miracles, and unexpected help is at hand. Peter Collington's book is unique in a moving and timeless way, but unsentimental and often takes a humorous slant on the traditional story. It is completely WITHOUT TEXT - an unusual approach which makes for children to use their imagination. hen all is said and done, this is what the Christmas message is all about.
