Read full description of the books:
In a letter to Santa, one little boy asks the question never before asked. What does Santa wish for?
He wishes for a child of his own, and Holly Claus is born. Unfortunately, an evil warlock named Herrikhan casts a curse that encases her heart in ice and locks the inhabitants of Santa's kingdom within its gates- even Santa cannot leave to bring Christmas to the children of the world.
As she grows, Holly's love for others also grows. She desires to do something that will help the children of the world. Santa tells her, "One day you will perform a unique act of kindness for the people of the world, and your generosity will be recorded here. It is your life's purpose, and it will be made clear to you when the moment is right."
Holly does indeed recognize the moment. She escapes the closed gates and makes her way to the Empire City. There she befriends and quickly falls in love with a man. *SPOILER* He's the young boy who wrote the letter. Holly confronts Herrikhan and realizes that love is the only thing that can lift the curse. She triumphantly returns with her true love, having restored Christmas and the joy it brings, to the world. Her good deed is recorded in the ancient Book of Forever and everyone lives happily ever after.
First off let me say how gorgeous the illustrations are! So magical and full of rich detail. I picked up this book because of the lovely portrait of Holly on the cover. The story itself is a shortened version of a longer narrative. Unfortunately that makes it seem slightly disjointed. Suddenly something else is happening without a proper bridge from one action to the next. That being said, it wasn't hard to follow the story. The big moments that would stick in a child's mind were still there, and I did enjoy reading it.
