The Christmas Wish-tastrophe Synopsis

On a dark Christmas evening, sometimes you need magic to light the way forward ...

Sparkling Christmas fiction full of heart and humour for children of 9-11: comedian Cariad Lloyd creates an unforgettable seasonal story for all the family.

Perfect for fans of A Boy Called Christmas and The Christmasaurus. Christmas is the best time to believe in magic ... One winter evening, Lydia Marmalade arrives at Lady Partridge's mansion. She has nothing except her sausage dog, Colin, but she's not going to let that stop her making this her new home. But Lady Partridge isn't at all keen to make Lydia part of the family.

If Lydia doesn't behave herself until the end of the winter season, she'll cast her off entirely. And now her mother's gone, Lydia doesn't have anywhere else to live. Helped (and often hindered) by a winter sprite, a snowstorm and a hungry Colin, Lydia makes a wish on the most magical night of the year ...

An unforgettable seasonal story for all the family, from the brilliantly funny Cariad Lloyd.
