'Dottie is waiting for the Christmas feeling to arrive—that fizzy, excited feeling, where everything is a bit magical. But this year, Dottie, her brother, Jem, and their dog, Shortbread, are staying with Grandma and Grandpa. Grandma and Grandpa are trying hard, but Christmas just isn't the same . . . A gorgeous, heart-warming story about misplacing the Christmas spirit, and finding it again.'

'Dottie, Jem and their dog Shortbread are staying st their Grandma and Grandpa's for Christmas, but it just does not have that Christmas feeling. They are not the usual ritualistic tasks the same way, nor doing them at all, such as making the pudding, putting up a tree or going to carols. Dottie is worried her parents will not be back in time, but Jem assures her that they will. When they go outside to find that Christmas feeling, they see their parents arrive with a special surprise.' (Introduction)
