The Christmas Chronicles

24 Stories, One-a-Night

by John Townsend, James Newman Gray
The Christmas Chronicles is a collection of 24 Christmas-themed short stories—around 500 words each—taking place at the North Pole from December 1st to the 24th as Santa Claus prepares to launch his sleigh to deliver the presents.

The stories feature Santa, elves, reindeer, and other characters, and are filled with humorous mishaps and snowy adventures. The book is designed to look like an advent calendar to fit the concept of 24 stories—one for every day in the buildup to Christmas. Lift the flaps on the cover—each featuring an image of a different Christmas character or object—and underneath you will find the page number where the story featuring this subject begins.

John Townsend worked as a secondary school teacher before becoming a writer of children's books for all ages.
James Newman Gray has worked as an in-house illustrator for several greeting card publishers, including Hallmark cards, before becoming an illustrator of children's books.
