It’s not easy being an orphan in Victorian London – but 12-year old Blanche can look after herself. Working as a carter with her old horse Rudy, she secretly dreams of giving a Christmas present to every girl and boy in the world. When she meets the irrepressible Rinki – a girl who likes to dream big – Blanche is swept away on a whirlwind festive adventure to the North Pole. Here, with the help of an excitable Christmas tree called Eggnog and a grumpy fairy named Carol, she sets about making her dreams of gift-giving come true.
