The story takes place on the island of Mazita off the coast of Africa which has become a British Protectorate as part of the breakup of the British Empire. Set in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the story has historical accuracy to it. There are 3 children of varying ages so the younger set can find one to identify with. Father Bob is learning to be a single father and having a time of it while coping with his job pressures. Just when the story is set for a nice Christmas Eve, Bob is called away and has to leave the children to cope. Poppy the oldest steps up to the task. From here the story takes a turn with unexpected guests showing up.
How will Poppy and her siblings cope with such huge responsibilities that the guests require. Poppy and crew muddle through a situation that would take place in a hospital today. (There was no 911 back in the 1960s.) They manage to get the guests comfortable and safe, stockings get filled as they should on Christmas and finally Father Bob gets to come home in time for Christmas Day with his family. A suitable ending to the story.
It's a great book for your children to read. It will inspire them.
Well written and a good plot.
What has happened to their father, Bob Dukes, who is a somewhat inept father, new as he is to being a single parent, and how the children cope with his absence and the other events Christmas night throws at them, makes for a suspenseful and seasonal story.
Great fun. I look forward to Katie Penryn’s next story and will certainly read her earlier ones.
Katie Penryn certainly knows how to tell a story. I loved it!
