It was Christmas Eve and all was not well at the North Pole.
Grandfather Frost took a deep breath. “The magic staff has been stolen!”
There was a gasp.
“Without it, Jack Frost cannot create the first frost ferns and without the frost ferns, the whole of the North Pole begins to heat up. If it is too hot, the elves will not be able to make toys, the Frost Maiden will wilt and the Frost Phoenix will melt…”
“… and the sleigh won’t start!”
The hunt is on but will the staff be found in time? Will the miserly thief’s love of animals convince him to return the booty or will Christmas b lost forever?
Koin the young Will Shakespeare, his friend Alice and the world’s greatest time-travelling wizard, DR Thaddeus Bombay, as they journey back to Dickensian London to try and save Christmas from meltdown.
