Sinopsis: Little Polly Flowerdew lives with her two maiden aunts, and she is absolutely sure that something special is going to happen this Christmas. She leaves her bedroom window open on Christmas Eve, just in case the three wise men decide to come visit. When she wakes up on Christmas morning, more than one miracle seems to have taken place.
A moving, lyrical, and endearing chapter book, celebrating the magic as well as the mystery of Christmas, this is our first title by Elizabeth Goudge, mistress of the art of storytelling. Charmingly illustrated with ink drawings by Margot Tomes, it is a perfect Christmas read-aloud for young children and parents looking for something slightly sentimental and bracingly wholesome.
Biografía del autor:
Elizabeth Goudge (1900-1984) received the MGM Literary Award, the Literary Guild Award, and a Carnegie Medal for The Little White Horse (which J.K. Rowling claimed was her favorite childhood book). She wrote many books, both fiction and non-fiction, for adults and children.
Margot Tomes (1918-1991) wanted to illustrate children's books from the time she was fourteen; she ended up illustrating more than sixty.
