Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

When a little boy spends his first Christmas after his parents' separation with his dad, on Dad's new farm, he's worried about what his Christmas will bring. A Christmas story with a difference. Ages: 4+ When a little boy spends his first Christmas after his parents' separation with his dad, on Dad's new farm, he's worried about what his Christmas will bring. Will Father Christmas know where he is? Will Dad remember to give him a present? After all, there doesn't seem to be much evidence of the Christmas spirit - no decorations on a Christmas tree and no reassuring pile of presents underneath. All the things that have meant Christmas to him in the past are missing, and he's very worried. On Christmas morning his worst fears are realised. Nothing with his name on. Nothing in wrapping paper. And Dad even asks him to do chores ...What follows is a wonderful story about the real meaning of Christmas, as with a delightfully Kiwi flavour, a little boy learns how much both his parents love him, and that this will never change.He learns to look around him and discovers the sheer joy and delight of some special time with his dad, and learns that, ultimately, Christmas presents come in all shapes and sizes, and the best ones aren't always from the mall. And when your present is the whole sky full of stars, no wrapping paper would ever be big enough. Beautifully illustrated by Lyn Kriegler, this is a wonderful new and totally Kiwi Christmas story. Ages: 4+
