"Moeri has shaped this story with an unsensationalized precision that will compel readers through the experience of 12-year-old King David, who regains consciousness after the massacre of his wagon train and assumes responsibility for his little sister's life on a barren plain . . . Vivid (and) memorable".--Booklist, starred review. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
Once upon a Christmas, there was an old woman who lived in a hut at the edge of the forest, with only her old dog, Uproar, to keep her company. The old woman had only one wish: to celebrate a real Christmas, with a tree and presents and candles and food. Just once. High up in the heavens, Star Mother's youngest child makes a wish, too. "Mother!" he wails, "just once I want to celebrate Christmas like they do down there!" So Star Mother sends him to earth, where he finds a hut and knocks on the door . . .In this original, heartwarming fable, Louise Moeri tells the story of an unlikely friendship and how it made two Christmas wishes come true.
