When an important holiday present disappears at the bookshop, it’s up to our come-to-life book characters to solve the mystery and save the day — all without giving away their magical existence. Characters include the Nutcracker Prince, Amy March, the Velveteen Rabbit, the Little Match Girl and even Ebenezer Scrooge himself! It’s a hilarious, heartwarming tale that reminds us that the best gifts don’t come wrapped in pretty paper and bows.
