A magical Christmas story from the bestselling author of Sophie’s World

In the corner of a dusty old bookstore, a boy named Joachim discovers a magic advent calendar. When he opens the first door on 1st December, a small piece of paper falls out: on it is the beginning of a story about a little girl named Elisabet…

Little Elisabet has been missing ever since the day she ran after a lamb and found herself travelling right across Europe to Palestine, and back through 2000 years to meet the Holy Family in Bethlehem. There she met angels, shepherds and wise men who joined her on her pilgrimage.

Each of the twenty-four windows in Joachim’s calendar hides another chapter in Elisabet’s story, along with the key to unlock a renewed sense of awe at the true meaning of Christmas.

But who was Elisabet and where is she now? On Christmas Eve, all the pieces of the puzzle will come together…

A magical Christmas adventure based around advent. It has a warm, festive feel to it and I'm sure anyone would enjoy it at Christmas time.
