ISBN: 9781447287346 (pbk.) :
A collection of three wonderfully festive stories from Eva Ibbotson. In the first story - 'Vicky and the Christmas Angel' - a young Viennese girl discovers, to her horror, who really brings the children's presents at Christmas. In 'The Christmas Star' a family encounters a fortune teller at the local Christmas market who changes their lives. 'The Great Carp Ferdinand' is a story about a hero with a difference as it follows the impact that Ferdinand - the carp intended for the Mannhaus family's Christmas dinner - has on the household in the lead-up to Christmas.
