An inspiring, charming little story about finding "everything you never wanted for Christmas".
Mo and his brother Aaron meet Santa at the mall. Santa is a pediatric oncologist and instead of simply giving them a present, he enlists their help as Santa's elves in the children's ward at the hospital. Each boy is tasked with getting to know a specific patient.
Aaron befriends Madhu, a charming boy who, although not Christian, has a fascination with Christmas and wants to learn all he can. Mo befriends Katrina, a young girl who has been through surgeries which have left her scarred and vulnerable. She wears a paper bag on her head and hides away from everyone.
The boys learn the true meaning of friendship and what kinds of gifts we should give at Christmas.
A magical novella. Easily read in one sitting, a funny, heartwarming story and one that will stay with you. I loved it. This would make a great Christmas film.
