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.
Sinopsis: Christmas is coming and Polly Flowerdew is bursting with excitement. What will she find in her stocking? Will the Wise Men visit as she has always hoped? Who knows what may happen at this special time of year? In the event, this Christmas isn't like any she has ever known, especially when three ships sail into the harbour. This charming and light-hearted period tale will appeal both to new readers and existing fans of Elizabeth Goudge's work.
