When the Prince and Princess marry, joy rings out across the land. But all too soon it fades away and a shadow hangs over the royal palace. As Christmas approaches, Prince Frederico must find a way to warm his new bride’s aching heart.
A mysterious letter in a secret drawer brings one night in the Great War vividly to life. Writing home from the front, a soldier has an incredible story to tell.
A singing of wings, a glorious light, and a sudden beacon of brightness? It can only mean – can it really? – a visit from the Angel Gabriel himself…
With each of the four stories being a substantial length it may take a night or two to read your way (or your little one) through each one. Alongside the moving Christmas stories brought to you by Michael Morpurgh they are transformed by the beautiful illustrations brought you by some of the top illustrators around including the legendary Quentin Blake.
