A Russian village in the 20th century; Alexi, a boy full of questions; a babushka brimming with memories - and Christmas approaching. The church has been closed for 60 years. But once it was 'as crowded as a pod full of peas'.
'Why can't we celebrate Christmas tomorrow in St Nicholas?' Alexi asks.
The answer is that it would take a miracle...
A story full of faith and hope with beautiful illustrations using the traditional icon technique and style. It teaches children that no matter what they are doing, they can pray and their prayers can also inspire others.
