Amelia Wishart was the first child ever to receive a
Christmas present. It was her Christmas spirit that
gave Santa the extra boost of magic he needed to make his
first trip around the world. But now Amelia is in trouble.
When her mother falls ill, she is sent to the workhouse to
toil under cruel Mr. Creeper. For a whole year, Amelia
scrubs the floors and eats watery gruel, without a whiff of
kindness to keep her going. Itís not long before her hope
begins to drain away.
Meanwhile, up at the North Pole, magic levels dip
dangerously low as Christmas approaches, and Santa knows
that something is gravely wrong. With the help of his trusty
reindeer, a curious cat, and Charles Dickens, he sets out to
find Amelia, the only girl who might be able to save
Christmas. But first Amelia must learn to believe again. . . .
