It's Christmas Eve. But a huge sack has fallen on the tracks near Sophie's house. Smart tin soldiers, elegant rocking horses, teddy bears with sailor caps and blue bows... the sack is full of the most beautiful toys that Sophie has ever seen.



Not wanting the children of the world to wake up disappointed on Christmas Day, Sophie goes up The Seven Hills of Christmas, in search of Father Christmas, carrying the sack on her back. Sophie's journey is arduous, across tall, snowy hills. No one has climbed them before.

And no one knows if Father Christmas really lives on them. Wild and magical creatures guard the hills. Will they allow Sophie to climb up? Will she ever find Father Christmas? And what about her own wish?

The delightful sketches by Nicholas Franco add life to Pooja Lulla's tale that weaves an enchanting journey of this magical Christmas Eve adventure, which will remind you of the true meaning of Christmas.

The Seven Hills of Christmas by Pooja Lulla, Rupa & Co. Rs 95. The book will be released at Crossword, Linking Road, Bandra on Sunday, at 12 noon. It will be subsequently available at leading bookstores.
