Merry Christmas, May you and your family be blessed! What a joyful time of the year! Shorty Bean is performing in a Christmas play at her school! During her schools winter break, a series of events brings unexpected change as lives are forever rearranged. Shorty Bean often reflects about how the coin of fire fell from her hands into the depths of the river last summer. It was a dreadful day on the mountain top with White Cloud and Smarty. This year, however, it will be no ordinary Christmas at her Grandparents cottage! A profound mystery begins to stir in the deepest parts of the forest as new creatures immerge. Unexpected characters have moved into the oak tree at the cottage. Under the deck where Mrs. Patty lives, new visitors arrive. Shorty Bean fondly remembers her dearest friends she had met in the enchanted forest last time. Wonderful friends like White Cloud, Tripod, Sir Davy, Ms. Nora and Ben-Jeer, just to name a few. Shorty Bean and the Coin of Fire is a story of a place of light, and a victory won in the darkest night. For which can only be seen through the eyes of a little girl as her imagination takes flight.
