Description

A little fairy gets lost in a snowstorm and is blown far away from home. Her poor, thin wings are freezing! As she looks for shelter, she meets a friendly robin and owl who give her food and clothes, and in turn she looks after a little elf boy.

It’s Christmas Eve and Father Christmas is out delivering his presents. Along his way he finds the lost, shivering children, and takes them home, as well as giving them gifts. Together the children have a wonderful Christmas -- and finally get warm.

Beautiful, delicate illustrations make this book one to treasure.

Reviews

'A lovely book to show how kindness matters.'
-- Creative Steps

'The highlight of the book is Drescher’s careful and accurate images of birds and animals, which are a delight. First published in Germany, Drescher’s books are aimed at the Rudolph Steiner philosophy of child education, but her style of illustration deserves a wider audience.'
-- Armadillo
