Description

A holiday treat for fans of the Dear Canada Series, and all lovers of historical fiction!

Celebrate the holidays with someone new. After growing up at bustling Fort Edmonton on the Prairies, Jenna found it hard to follow the stricter rules at the more "civilized" Fort Victoria. Even with new friends and different family ties, she still treasures her exciting make-believe world of Villains and Heroes. Adventure is never far from Jenna's mind . . . and sometimes it erupts right into her life.

This short story was originally published in Dear Canada: A Christmas to Remember, a collection featuring many of Canada's top writers for children, including Jean Little, Sarah Ellis, Carol Matas, and more. New readers will adore this stand-alone holiday tale, while fans of the Series will recognize the voice of Jenna, whom they first met in the award-winning Dear Canada book Where the River Takes Me.

Collect all 12 Dear Canada Christmas stories this season and enjoy a very happy holiday!
