When the ugly little fir tree is taken to the city, no one wants to buy him; they prefer the big tall trees. But a homeless boy asks the shopkeeper if he can take the tree, and down by the river in a cardboard box, decorated with a few candles, the tree finds itself at the centre of a magical Christmas Eve it will never forget. A Christmas tale with a classic feel but a modern theme at its heart.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
What a sweet, heart-felt story just perfect for the Christmas holidays. I absolutely loved this story. Against all odds, a little tree served a purpose of happiness and later far more.
A book full of spirit and charm, and hope. Showing a glimmer of what the human spirit could be and how the holidays are magical to all, this little book is sure to become a classic for years to come. More need to read it.
A picture book with lovely artwork to accompany the story perfectly… Huddy and Sutton did a fantastic job at getting it right. A true meaning of what Christmas should be about, leaving all the commercialism behind. I found the story inspiring to say the least and plan on sharing this with my daughter, Katie.
