The Empty Stocking by Richard Curtis
Twins Sam and Charlie are worried. It’s Christmas Eve and Charlie has been a naughty girl. Her sister on the other hand is a little angel. Everyone’s concerned Charlie will be left without presents. Surely Santa just can’t over look everything she’s done in the past year. He can’t possibly include all the children who’ve not been good when he does his rounds. Surely sometimes he has to get tough.
But Santa makes a mistake this year and it’s up to Charlie to put things right in a last minute act of kindness. Will her kind deed be enough to redeem herself? Will she be a happy little girl on Christmas morning after all?
The words of director and screen writer Richard Curtis match up perfectly with the sweetest illustrations by Rebecca Cobb who was shortlisted for the 2013 Waterstones Prize and the prestigious Kate Greenaway Award.
The Empty Stocking is a funny, feel-good, heart-warming
story that’s ideal for the time of year it was especially written
