With Catherine Doyle

Age 9+

George is about to spend his third Christmas without his mum. Ever since she died, George’s dad, Hugo, has spent all his time working. To George, it’s as though life has lost its colour. Then, one day, George wanders into Marley’s Curiosity Shop, where he finds a magic snow globe. George isn’t sure how it works, but when he looks at it, he finds himself reliving one of his Christmases past, when his mother was still with them and everyone was happy. That night, George and his dad go on a magical journey to three different Christmases – one from the past, one present, and one future. With magic, hope, and friendship, can George and his dad find a way to stop living in black and white?

Book a place for your class in this wonderfully wintry event with author Catherine Doyle to hear more about her festive new book, Miracle on Ebenezer Street (Penguin). Catherine will talk about why she decided to adapt Charles Dickens’ classic tale, A Christmas Carol, into a children’s novel. You’ll also get the chance to ask her questions about her new book and her favourite part of writing Christmas stories. Catherine will also do a reading from her enchanting novel.  

Sign your class up now – even a miser like Ebenezer Scrooge wouldn’t want to miss this free, fun-filled event!
