Young Ebenezer ~ A New Christmas Carol
This story is a seasonal treat, a modern, lyrical re-telling of the Charles Dickens classic - ‘A Christmas Carol.’
The book is specially designed for families to share during the Holiday Season, or for young competent readers to try for themselves. This is a beautiful ebook to treasure, with full colour images on every page.
Eb is a spoilt child who really is not one for caring, and he certainly hates sharing. He is watched over by a very special guardian – the family’s ancient longcase clock, who is bestowed with magic. His name is Grandfather Time.
On Christmas Eve Grandfather Time decides he must teach the boy a lesson. So he calls upon his friends; the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future and with lessons to learn he brings forth the first tutor – a little golden-red King Charles spaniel, called Miss Ruby Heart.
Will this unlikely pair be able to teach the boy the error of his ways? Or will he be doomed to be a scruffy, lonely teenager stuck forever in his own little world?
Available in Kindle and paperback.
Rose, aka, Susan, talks a little about the Charity …
“The charity is, WYE VALLEY NHS TRUST UMBRELLA CHARITY because I work in the hospital and I want to help more. I am raising money for the Children's ward and children's areas around the hospital to cheer the little ones who have to stay in or visit hospital during Christmas. I have a JustGiving page at the moment our focus is to get table tennis equipment for the children’s ward in time for Christmas to help ease them through their stay.
Ping pong, I have read, is very therapeutic. It is not only enjoyable it is a low-injury risk sport that keeps one fit and flexible, without putting severe stress on joints. Playing table tennis increases one's agility and flexibility, and most of all reaction time. So proving to be of great benefit in helping to speed a child’s recovery.”
A perfect read and a perfect stocking filler, who said ping pong couldn't make you smile!
