Illustrated by Amanda Francey.
Dottie is waiting for the Christmas feeling to arrive - that fizzy, excited feeling, where everything is a bit magical. But this year, Dottie, her brother, Jem, and their dog, Shortbread, are staying with Grandma and Grandpa. Grandma and Grandpa are trying hard, but Christmas just isn't the same...
A gorgeous, heart-warming story about misplacing the Christmas spirit, and finding it again.
