Christmas magic at Laughing Oyster

Experience Christmas Magic at the Laughing Oyster Bookshop this Sunday when Diane Tolley will introduce her new book Kris Kringle's Magic, the Story of a Boy who Became a Legend.

This is a Christmas story for the whole family.

“It is accepted that Kris Kringle lives at the North Pole. With elves,” says Tolley. “But have you ever wondered how that happened?

"It must have taken some world-changing, even traumatic event to force an entire race to take up lodgings at a place so utterly inhospitable and unwelcoming.”

Kris Kringle's Magic is a story of how love can overcome prejudice, hatred and abuse. There is true forgiveness and love and, of course, magic.

“You will never picture old Kris Kringle in the same light again,” says Tolley. “If you loved him before, you will love him even more now.”

Tolley will discuss and sign her book between 3 and 4 p.m. this Sunday at the Laughing Oyster Bookshop in downtown Courtenay.
