Explanation of the Book:

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire – a genie. Her family had three wishes and they’d only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he’d become a member of the family anyway. Even with a genie, Lily's young life wasn’t perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes. She told Fazire she wanted to find a man like in her books and she made the most complicated wish Fazire had ever heard. Her wished-for man had to be impossibly handsome, virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless (amongst a dozen other things). He also had to think she was beautiful and he had to love her more than anything in the world. Nathaniel McAllister wasn’t born to a life where there were such things as genies granting wishes. His life was filled with drugs, crime and neglect. He was running errands for a gangster before he was in his teens and, even though life and hard work led him to wealth and respectability, he always knew, deep down, he was dirty. When Nate met Lily he knew he was no good for her but as virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless as he was, Nate was no match for the pull of sweet, innocent Lily. Unfortunately, Lily’s wish included that she and her hero go through trials and tribulations to test their love. And Fazire wasn’t only a good genie, he loved Lily – so he gave her exactly what she wanted.

Explanation of the Book:

A beautifully-told and stunningly-illustrated Father Christmas origin story. Coming together like a perfect festive jigsaw, this story explains all of the traditions and myths around Santa Claus, from how he travels around the world in one night, how his sleigh and reindeer can fly, and why he leaves presents, to the origins of his red coat. A young boy is herding his family’s reindeer when they are drawn into a mysterious cave. The cave is the holder of eternal summer, looked after by three strange characters – a wooden creature, a bird and a fish. Once entered, the cave cannot be left without time in the outside world standing still. In his sadness at not being able to leave, the boy is granted three wishes and chooses freedom, happiness and time. He is told that they will all be granted – eventually. After the first year of working hard in the summer cave, the boy is allowed to see his family in the outside world. Time stands still as he visits his parents, and he leaves gifts behind to show that he has visited. As the years go by, this annual visit continues and he begins to call on not only his parents, but more and more other families... and Christmas traditions as we know them, start to be created.

Explanation of the Book:

This early work by William Wymark Jacobs was originally published in 1902 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. Jacobs worked as a clerk in the civil service before turning to writing in his late twenties, publishing his first short story in 1895. Most of Jacobs' work appeared before the onset of World War I, and although the majority of his output was humorous in tone, he is best-remembered now for his macabre tales, particularly those contained in his 1902 collection The Lady of the Barge, such as 'The Monkey's Paw' and 'The Toll House'.

Explanation of the Book:

“Once upon a time...” Do those words call up an image for you? ...A fantasy, perhaps, of a fairy tale princess who ends up with a handsome prince? If so, you’re not alone. Most of us as children heard fairy tales from our parents. We saw the movies. We read the books. Those stories all had lessons, some more obvious, and some quite subtle. As children, we had our own unique ways of interpreting what these lessons meant to us. Well, we’re adults now, and it’s our turn to read the stories to our kids. Have you ever stopped to think about what the lessons mean to you now? Many of the teachings still apply, but in more complex ways than we may have previously considered. Nowhere is this truer than in your financial life. Take for instance, the story of the Three Wishes.

When waitress Bree Miller wakes up in the hospital after a blizzard in a tiny Vermont town, she can’t recall the tragedy that landed her there. But she’s certain of only one thing—that she has been magically granted three wishes. Are the things Bree longs for—a home, a soul mate, a family—now within her grasp? After all, one of her wishes seems to have already come true: at her bedside is Tom Gates, a renowned author who’s come to town to make sense of his fame—and who, as the accident’s only witness, is determined to make sure Bree is safe and sound.
