One Christmas Eve, Corinne Fenton
One Christmas Eve, Grandpa puts on his best shirt, Bella passes him his favourite hat, and together they walk to Luna Park. Bella is given one silver coin to spend on whatever ride she chooses. When she climbs onto a dashing carousel horse, something magical happens – they launch into the night sky! There they encounter a jolly man in a red suit and his prancing reindeer. But the magic doesn't end there... 'One Christmas Eve' is a heartwarming story celebrating family, sharing and caring for each other.
