This is a wonderful, illustrated Christmas tale that I’m sure will be loved for many years to come by both children and adults.
….Tonight was Christmas Eve and Greta Gumboot the good witch was wearing her special red suit, purple snow boots and white pointed hat over her shoulder length red hair. As the frosty flakes fell deep and thick in the woodland outside Greta Gumboot took a very special sack, made of soft, red Velvet out of her wardrobe. Her great uncle had given it to her when she was a young girl.
