The Miracle on Ebenezer Street

Written by Catherine Doyle

The Miracle on Ebenezer Street Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Specsavers Children's Book of the Year (senior category) at the 2020 An Post Irish Book Awards. An enchanting and exciting tale of Christmas magic from multi-award-winning and bestselling writer Catherine Doyle. 'Sparkles with magic . . . A wintry wonder of a book' Abi Elphinstone A stunning modern reimagining of Charles Dickens' beloved classic, A Christmas Carol. 'Old Marley's magic was beginning to stir...' George is about to spend his third Christmas without his mum. Since she died, George's life has felt dull and grey; his dad has thrown himself into his work and has no time for family, and definitely no time for Christmas. Then, George stumbles across Marley's Curiosity Shop. There he finds a mysterious snow globe, which - though George can't quite understand how - appears to show a scene from George's past. A Christmas in which he and his family were together, and happy... That night, George and his dad are swept on an adventure to three Christmases - past, present, and future. With help from new friends, and just a touch of magic, can they begin living life in full colour again? 'A supremely confident writer' Telegraph 'Vividly exciting and poignant . . . Destined to become a Christmas classic' Louise O'Neill

The Miracle on Ebenezer Street Press Reviews

This reimagining of A Christmas Carol is simply spellbinding. * iNews * Delightfully festive . . . Warm, imaginative, and brimming with Christmas magic -- Carlie Sorosiak Full of Catherine Doyle's signature blend of humour, hope, and heart, this is a modern Christmas classic in the making. With clever nods to the original, unforgettable new characters, and hilarious escapades, Doyle's fresh take on the familiar tale will delight readers of all ages. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and most of all you'll feel like a child discovering the magic of Christmas -- Katie and Kevin Tsang A charming reimagining of one of my favourite childhood reads, managing to be both heart-warmingly familiar, and refreshingly new at the same time. It's filled with miracle-making curiosities, a delightfully bonkers cast, a purple reindeer with a grudge, and a quest to mend two very broken hearts. All-in-all, a magical whirlwind of an adventure filled with heart, hilarity, and miraculous mayhem -- Hana Tooke Catherine Doyle has done the impossible - she has breathed new life into this much loved and oft retold story, sprinkling it with her inimitable warmth, charm, and humour. This vividly exciting and poignant retelling made me believe in magic as fervently as I did when I was a child. It is, to my mind, destined to become a Christmas classic -- Louise O'Neill Both a celebration of a Christmas classic while also being a magical adventure all of its own. Heart-warming, incredibly funny, and action-packed, it's a story that truly captures the spirit of Christmas -- Anna James An absolute Christmas cracker: whip-smart, witty and warm, bursting with emotion and laugh-out-loud jokes. A classic Christmas treat reconfigured into a heartwarming family romp for the 21st century, featuring an elf on the shelf that's bad for your health. Kids and adults alike will love spotting how Doyle has ingeniously adapted the original text, but more than anything else, they'll be swept away by George's fight to bring back Christmas and save his father. I utterly loved it -- Ross Montgomery A little miracle of a story . . . Fizzes with magic and joy. A wintry wonder of a book -- Abi Elphinstone
