This is Christmas Eve, but it is dismal and empty because the Christmas Spirit has gone missing. It mysteriously falls upon the little boy Vitalian Snowstar to find her and bring her back to the sad village of Deephaven. Accompany him now as he braves the Ill Wind and the Wolf at the Door, traverses the Sands of Time, passes through the Tide, and finally approaches the terrible throne of the great Northern Lights. And the Christmas Spirit-will Vitalian recognize her, and what will he say? You will find out in this magical past-your-bedtime story, where sounds have color and flowers have voices, where Old Man River rises from his bed, and the Music of the Spheres is felt and seen.
