A heartwarming story of love and the magic of Christmas, illustrated by painter Don Kilby.

One Christmas in Lunenburg presents a classic folktale in a contemporary setting, told in a way that will appeal to young readers.

As Christmas draws closer, siblings Rachel and Nathan are caught up in the excitement of the season. Amy Bennet’s story embraces sign language as Rachel and Nathan ask the adults in their life about the old story of animals speaking on Christmas eve.

Award-winning painter Don Kilby’s illustrations capture the magic of the heritage town of Lunenburg and its signature mingling of the old and new. Kilby’s oil paintings and Bennet’s words bring Rachel and Nathan to life as they experience some Christmas magic of their own.
