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 Godine's first title by Elizabeth Goudge, mistress of the art of storytelling, and it's charmingly illustrated with ink drawings by Margot Tomes. It is a perfect Christmas read-aloud for young children and their parents.
