Two naughty elves have stolen the magic bell that belongs to Silver the snow fairy. She’s very annoyed about having her work helping Santa Claus interrupted, but she must find her bell. It’s almost Christmas Eve and Silver needs her bell. While searching for the bell, Silver, mounted on her trusty unicorn, Wonder, discovers a young girl in the woods, shivering in threadbare clothes, obviously lost. The thing that attracts Silver to this girl, Sabrina, is that she has found Silver’s magic bell, buried in the snow. Silver wants to help the girl, to feed and clothe her, to make her warm again, but most of all to take away the sorrow that is so evident. But the naughty elves aren’t done yet and there’s an adventure ahead for both Sabrina and the snow fairy, one that will take them through a window to find what was believed lost.
Heartwarming Christmas fairy tales don’t come any better than this one. Jessie L. Best’s children’s story, Silver the Snow Fairy: The Christmas Window, is a real charmer. Complete with elves, fairies, a unicorn and even a couple of trolls, not to mention the magic of a special bell and the magic of Christmas, this story has all the makings of a good fairy tale. At first one might compare this to another fairy tale about a neglected girl, Cinderella, and her uncaring stepmother, but there is no dashing prince coming to Sabrina’s rescue and the ending is one that brings a family back together with a stepmother that is as loving as any parent could be. A happily-ever-after, warm and wholesome Christmas story.
