New friends and hockey makes every Christmas bright!

Owen and Holly have just moved to Nova Scotia from Saskatchewan and everything is different. There are still boxes to unpack, and playing hockey in their new driveway just isn't the same as skating around the frozen lake back home. Neighbours come around to help their mom and dad, but with Christmas only a few days away, Holly and Owen really miss the friends they left behind.

Little do they know that this year, a special surprise awaits them. On Christmas Eve, their father reveals what could very well be the best gift ever - a brand new backyard ice rink, filled with a whole community of new friends!

With breathtaking artwork and a poignant story filled with holiday spirit, this wondrous new picture book will warm the hearts of all who read it.
