Plum will not stay glum.

For as long as she can remember, Plum has lived at the Mary Fitzgerald Orphanage, wishing and hoping for a family. When a sudden snowfall threatens a delivery of presents on Christmas Eve, Plum is determined to save Christmas—even for the kids who laugh at her.

Plum’s pure heart grants her an unexpected reward. When she eats a cake left behind by a mysterious magician, she is transported into the Land of Sweets. But Christmas here is threatened, too—by a sourness that is spreading from the center of the land. Plum’s determined to help, and in doing so, she might just find the family she’s always dreamed of, thanks to a good heart—and Christmas magic!


Inspired by the Nutcracker and how the Sugar Plum fairy got her wings, this is a magical, Christmas book with a heartwarming story that kids of all ages will love. Readers will love Plum's pure heart, and the magical world she finds herself in. It's no surprise she gets her happy ending. She has a heart of gold, and goes out of her way to do nice things to those who aren't nice to her at all. It's not hard to fall in love with Plum! Thompson's illustrations are simply adorable. I love the warm color she uses. Her illustrations bring Plum's story to life perfectly.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
