A beautifully re-illustrated, child-friendly edition of this best-seller.
A boy called Joachim acquires a strange old Advent calendar - and uncovers from it the story of a girl called Elisabeth, who disappeared from her home fifty years earlier. Elisabeth has been taken back through time and right across Europe to Palestine, to see the Holy Family in Bethlehem.
Two thousand years of history flash by, and angels, shepherds and wise men join her on her joyful pilgrimage. It is Joachim who, through the Advent calendar, makes it possible for her to come home.
This edition of 'The Christmas Mystery' has been abridged for younger readers.
