The Little Christmas Engine
by Anna Ruhe/Igor Lange
It’s winter in the pleasure park. The Little Engine is dreaming of Christmas, as he does every year. It would be so nice to see a real Christmas for himself. Suddenly something terrible happens up in the sky: Father Christmas comes crashing down to earth with his overloaded sleigh. Fortunately, no one is hurt, but the sleigh is broken. This is the Little Engine’s chance. He makes Father Christmas a great offer – and so he saves this year’s Christmas.
