Christmas: Time for Miracles
The earth’s gold rind strip
Author: Maria Papayanni
Illustrated by Eleni Tsampra
I’m not even sure where or when, I heard this story told…
In a far away city something happened that was very strange indeed. People lost their dreams. They no longer made wishes, no longer visited, no longer held feasts. They forgot about fairytales too. Nobody wanted to share the miracle of life. A wise old man tries to help people but an evil witch, the most wicked of the lot, has put dreams under lock and buried their gold rind strip at the root of the rainbow.
Two children from the city will dare attempt the impossible. They will travel over the rainbow, conquer their fears and bring back people’s dreams.
