It's Christmas Eve and it has been snowing all day. Jonathan is in bed with a cold. Just as he is closing his sleepy eyes, a little dwarf appears and invites him to the Inside Land, where he meets Father Christmas, who has a message for Jonathan, and also makes a promise to Squirrel,
Rabbit, Bird and Mouse, who cannot find any food in the snowy woods.

On Christmas morning Jonathan feels better and can't wait to play with his new sled. But is there something he's forgetting?

Jonathan remembers the hungry animals out in the snow and fills his new sled with nuts, seeds, carrots, and all sorts of good things for them to eat. Everyone will have a Merry Christmas.
