The town beneath the christmas tree

Christmas is a time for family, particularly children who keep the magic of Christmas alive. What happens though when children become nasty and fight over the wrapped presents under the tree? Six cousins find out in the Town Beneath The Christmas Tree. In the spirit of Charles Dickens the cousins are placed into an unfamiliar, upside-down world, where they are forced to deal with, and rely on, each other. The journey begins with the heroine, nine-year-old Hailey Jade, landing in a winter wonderland where terror soon sets in, as she realizes she is all alone. Soon Hailey is joined by her older cousin, Isaiah. Together they recognize that the younger children have also been catapulted through time and space and are now missing and in danger. The race to find the younger children ends them up in the town beneath their grandfather’s Christmas tree, where they find the true meaning of Christmas and the love for one another.

Sample text:

Grandpa also told me that it’s better to tell the truth, and face the consequences, than it is to tell a lie— except, of course, for the harmless, often necessary, little white lies. You know which ones I’m talking about. They’re the kind you might tell the school’s crossing guard; like when you tell her that her pink-flowered pajama bottoms really are a great fashion choice. Or the kind you might tell your favorite uncle, like his thinning hair looks great in that style held together by globs of misplaced gel.

So, given that, I’m putting on my serious hat, and I won’t lie to you. This is not a sappy, heartwarming Christmas story. It won’t make you feel all gooey inside so you’ll want to run out and hug your neighbor. Nor does it have a super-mushy ending, where a bumbling angel exposes himself in order to sound a bell, or grow some wings. Nope, it’s not like that at all. I will tell you however, that this promises to be a completely different kind of Christmas tale.
