The Fire Before Christmas

A multicultural Christmas story

“It was the day our home burnt down...” So begins Luca’s very own Christmas story. Luca, his heavily pregnant mother and his irritating big sister find themselves homeless just before Christmas. What now? In search of shelter they go from one family member and acquaintance to the next, but it’s all no good in the long run. So it’s just as well that Luca is best friends with the twins Ibi and Mayla. Their Syrian family may not celebrate Christmas—but they do come up with some really hot ideas.

• a modern, cross-cultural, inter-faith Christmas tale
• touching, turbulent, funny and realistic

128 pages, Age 8 and up, ISBN 978-3-95470-125-4
About the author

Ilona Einwohlt

Ilona Einwohlt was born in 1968. She studied children’s and young adult literature, Hispanic Studies and history before turning her hand to writing. Inspiration for The Fire Before Christmas came from her Syrian-German neighbours—and a Turkish cleaning lady who happened to be present and stepped in as a midwife in the church. She’s writing from experience!
