A Christmas Ball (Paperback)
This is a heartfelt Christmas story of a young girl named Krista who treasures a Christmas ball that contains a ballerina named Sunshine. Krista drifts off to sleep and dreams that her ball is blown from her hands by a wintery howling and blistering wind that comes into the living room and pulls her ball out of her hands into a winter storm shortly before Christmas. The ballerina, Sunshine, emerges from her Christmas ball only to find herself in the midst of a dangerous winter storm. The ballerina finds comfort and help at the hands of another ballerina named Chrinkle, who was also trapped in a winter storm and found refuge with a nice family. Sunshine wanders to Chrinkle's family cottage in Toy Town, which becomes a place of safety. Sunshine is taken back to Winter Town, and Krista wakes up from her dream; there she finds Sunshine inside her Christmas Ball, shining brighter than a midnight star.
