ARC Arrival: Secrets of a Christmas Box by Steven Hornby

Secrets of a Christmas Box by Steven Hornby

Publisher: Ecky Thump Books

I received this book for review from Ecky Thump Books.

From the start of December,
to Christmas Eve night,
one chapter an evening,
wrapped up with delight.

Enter the magical festive world of the Christmas 'Tree-Dwellers', as Larry, a Christmas snowman, wakes up after the long sleep in the Christmas box, to find his brother missing.

Desperate to find him before Christmas, Larry, along with his girlfriend Debbie, a newcomer Splint, and Larry's companion Tinsel, break the laws of the 'Tree-Elders' and escape down the tree and away into the house, to look for clues.

Away from the safety of the tree and in an unfamiliar world, the Dwellers stumble upon a dark and sinister secret that threatens their entire world. Can Larry and the group make it back to the tree in time to warn the others, and finally uncover the truth behind the 'Secrets of a Christmas Box'? (book jacket)

Steven Hornby grew up near Preston in the north of England, and has been storytelling for over 15 years in visual effects and animated movies.

He initially planned 'Secrets of a Christmas Box' as a screenplay, after spending several years having the idea running around in his head, but instead turned it into his first novel.

He wanted to capture the magical time of Christmas and by sharing the story, hopes it will bring back those special feelings for others too, that they may have long since forgotten. (book jacket)
