Children eagerly hang up their stockings, families go to church together and everyone enjoys Christmas cake and other treats of the festive season. From an unexpected visitor on Christmas Eve in 'The Christmas Mouse' to an unwanted change of plan in 'No Holly For Miss Quinn', Miss Read recounts some of the most memorable Christmas events where often, despite best-laid plans, things do not always go as expected.
