This story is a seasonal treat, a modern, lyrical retelling of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol.
The audiobook is specially designed for families to share during the holiday season, or for young, competent listeners to try for themselves. This is a beautiful audiobook to treasure.
Eb is a spoiled child who really is not one for caring, and he certainly hates sharing. He is watched over by a very special guardian - the family’s ancient longcase clock, who is bestowed with magic. His name is Grandfather Time.
On Christmas Eve, Grandfather Time decides he must teach the boy a lesson. So he calls upon his friends, the Ghosts of Past, Present, and Future, and with lessons to learn, he brings forth the first tutor - a little, golden red King Charles spaniel, called Miss Ruby Heart.
Will this unlikely pair be able to teach the boy the error of his ways? Or will he be doomed to be a scruffy, lonely teenager stuck forever in his own little world?
