The third instalment in the series following A Boy Called Christmas and The Girl Who Saved Christmas When Amelia Wishart is rescued from a life of misery by Father Christmas, she imagines life will be magical and fantastic. But it isn’t always easy growing up as a human in Elfhelm. For one thing, elf school can be annoying when you have to sing Christmas songs every day—even in July—and when you fail all your toy-making tests. Also, it can get very, very cold. Amelia knows her adopted parents—the newly married Father Christmas and Mary Christmas—care for her very much. Father Christmas is even writing a guidebook for her. But she sometimes wonders if there is more to life than eating gingerbread and decorating Christmas trees. When a very jealous Easter Bunny and his Rabbit Army launch an attack to stop Christmas, Amelia starts to realize the value of everything in Elfhelm, and joins with her new family and fellow elves to keep Christmas alive.

A memoir reveals the struggles of a southern boy as he attempts to overcome his greatest obstacle in life—his stuttering. Henry Sherman Christmas observed a man trying to do what most people do so easily, however, he was having little success. He was sixty five years old and the man’s disability brought back all the memories of his youth, from his preschool days, trying to stay under the radar and under the bed, until loading his families old Ford sedan, in 1958, and heading to California. It involves the torment of an abusive but loving father, old Pa, and the protection of his mother, Ma, who would have given her life to defend her children. It’s the mixed up world of cruelty and love that is so tightly woven they seem to appear as one. In this poignant memoir he shares a candid and heartfelt glimpse into the life of a child who stutters. It entails surviving the cruelty of his teacher in the first, second, and third grade, Mister, who though his disability was caused by his laziness and the neglect of his parents. It captures the caring side of Miss Jenkins, his teacher in the fourth grade, who taught him how to conquer his disability. Protected by his brother, Cone, and tormented by Billy, the relentless bully who would not leave him alone. Loved, and loved back, by his best friend Bo, a young black boy. He was born a poor sharecropper’s son in 1945, in Arkansas. He’s a story-teller, like his father. Reflections of A Boy Named Christmas, is the inspiring story of a boy who just wants to overcome his greatest obstacle in life-and through determination, perseverance, and the love of others, eventually manages to do just that.
