This is a Christmas story inspired by A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I hope you enjoy it 😉
Marley McCarthy is not looking forward to Christmas. All his mates get better pressies than him and, because of this, he hates going back to school in January. While he waits for his mum to come home from her cleaning job on Christmas Eve, Marley falls asleep and is visited by a a little sprite with a warm Christmas message.
