the town beneath the christmas tree Reviews
An argument under the Christmas tree leads to an accidental massive head-bop for six young children. Where they end up and how they get back is the stuff of legend. Or at least of a really good Christmas story.Nine-year-old Hailey suddenly finds herself in a strange, snow-covered land. She is soon joined by her cousins Isaiah and Bubba. Together they go in search of the rest of the group, for they are certain that the rest of them wound up in the same place.Sure enough, they find five-year Arhiana in the lower branches of a huge tree that is ablaze with many-colored lights. Moving further on, they rescue three-year-old Hayden from the conductor cabin of a train that is running circles around a pleasant-looking little town.Things get even stranger when they cross the bridge into the town and find it filled with people dressed in 19th-century garb. When they find two-year-old Harper, what happens next shocks the two oldest of the group beyond their wildest dreams.This was a sweet story, with very likeable characters. And as good stories should, it had a lesson to convey. “From the mouths of babes” – that phrase has great significance here. The reader is easily drawn into the predicament surrounding the band of unwilling adventurers, and will love the ending. I have read this story a couple of times, and still get chills at the end.Definitely worth the short time it takes to read this tale, at any time of the year.
This is a lovely story that touched me in so many ways. It isn’t soppy or over the top – just like it promises. The author tells an honest and heart-warming tale that, I am sure, will inspire you.Our story is narrated by young, Hailey. After a brief battle with her cousins over the Christmas presents they find themselves in a strange place. Their only clue is a message on Hailey’s cousin’s phone, “Merry Little Christmas”. This is a Christmas tale with a twist. It is well written and the plot flows nicely. I was given a copy to read for an honest review.I am sure your children will enjoy reading it or have it read to them. It’s well worth a read.
The Town Beneath the Christmas Tree lives up to its billing as a “Dickens-like” story. Narrated by one of the six cousins, Hailey, the story takes the children on a trip to a land only imagined where they discover the true meaning of Christmas. Though there are no “Ghosts of Christmas-anything,” there are several very likeable characters. The reason for the predicament in which they find themselves will sound awfully familiar to any parents who celebrate Christmas. It is a children’s book for all ages, and for the ages; a recommended reading.
Review Rating: 5 stars! Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ FavoriteAn entertaining story for children with a very original and unique plot that is dreamy at the same time identifiable.The Town Beneath the Christmas Tree by J.R. Wirth is a story with Christmas as the backdrop. In the story we see six children fighting over their gifts under the Christmas tree, and finding themselves transported to a new land. Narrated by Hailey, one of the cousins in the story, the book takes readers on a trip to another town where they learn the true meaning of Christmas. Hailey is soon followed by her cousins, Isaiah and Bubba, to a snow-covered strange land where they also run into their other cousins, Ariana, Hayden and two-year-old Harper. How will the cousins treat each other now? I found the story engaging and enjoyable. Children will love the trip to a new land with Hailey and her cousins. The plot is unusual and original. The adventures faced by the cousins while in the strange land are exhilarating and will hold the interest of young readers. The beautiful message and concept conveyed through the story are useful and helpful in teaching children. The quarrelsome kids and their constant bickering with each other is relatable to all children because, apart from its dream-like plot and adventures, the story also teaches them something helpful and informative. Readers will fall in love with all the cousins. Though the story is set during the Christmas season, it can be read at any time.
There are going to be a lot of things that seem "off" to you as you are reading this story. Characters behave and talk in a much older way than they should, but I would urge you to keep reading. All is explained in the story. The only real ding that I can give the story is the unfortunate choice of title, it ruins a bit of the mystery of the story. Still, if you're looking for a bit of an unusual Christmas story, this is a good one.
