For real Christmas stories for your children or grandchildren Amy Brooke’s latest tale of the Holly and the Ivy.
"The Holly and the Ivy
when they are both full-grown
of all the trees that are in the wood
The Holly bears the Crown…"
Christmas has always been a special time for Holly. But when once again she is too unwell to go out with the carol singers on Christmas Eve, she is disappointed. She is puzzled too, by a strange dream that has begun to come to her as she falls asleep. When her tall, mysterious aunt from the North arrives to stay, the dream begins to take a different shape, as the old stories from far-off times in history and legend times meet the new hope of Christmas, and the wonder of a very special child.
"Thoroughly recommended. I loved the way it brings alive the real magic of Christmas, and the message of hope in the story of the new-born child. The skilful blending in of the old Norse myths is especially evocative - in is present day setting." Pamela N.
