In Griselda Bone's gloomy orphanage, daydreaming is banned, skipping is forbidden and Christmas is well and truly cancelled. But for Phoebe and her sausage dog Herb, is it possible that, just when things seem at their bleakest, magic awaits in the swirling, snow-filled air?
Join them on an enchanting adventure in this beautifully moving story by the bestselling author of Sky Song and The Unmapped Chronicles, Abi Elphinstone, and renowned illustrator Fiona Woodcock.
Longer than the average picture book, but the tale is so enchanting that you really don't notice. The story of a young orphan who overcomes a horrid existence to find her happy ever after. Gorgeously descriptive, magical and Christmassy.
