The Miracle on Ebenezer Street by Catherine Doyle
A magical snow globe, a purple reindeer, a grow-your-own Christmas pudding… The Miracle on Ebenezer Street is bursting with festive treats! This modern reimagining of A Christmas Carol will take the reader on a memorable adventure. Hilarious, laugh-out-loud antics join heart-felt moments of loss and grief.
It’s George’s third Christmas without his mum. Since her death, his dad has banned all mention of Christmas in their house. Keeping busy with work, he’s is rarely home, leaving George with his wonderfully lovely (and slightly mischievous) Nana Flo. Sneaking off to a Christmas fair, George and Nana Flo make the most of the sights, sounds, smells and tastes before they have to return home to their sad, colourless life. As they are about to leave, George comes across Marley’s Christmas Curiosities – the most amazing Christmas shop! Filled with every festive item you could ever imagine and more, this shop is a Christmas lover’s dream! When George discovers a mysterious snow globe containing a scene from his past, he realises his life may never be the same again. Will George’s Christmas wish come true? Will the colour return to their lives? Will George and his dad ever be happy again?
It’s going to take some pretty powerful miracles and plenty of hints of Dickens to change three years of heartache. Watch out for Marley, Scrooge, Cratchit, Tiny Tim and even the year of publication in this magical tale.
The Miracle on Ebenezer Street is a powerful story of family, love and dealing with loss. It is so clear that everyone needs support in grief and that those who love us are always there for us – it’s never to late to reach out for help. It is wonderful to find such a fun, festive story with so much substance. The Miracle on Ebenezer Street will definitely find a home in my children’s special Christmas book box.
