Description
Every winter, the magical Christmas Deer visits the Christmas Trees growing on Faith Mountain. "I promise that your life will bring the Return of Light to the humans," he says. Then he bows his head and touches each mature tree with his starry antlers. One year, however, he pauses before Treewing, a fir who's too young to be harvested. The Christmas Deer touches him anyway, telling him that he has a special destiny—a promise Treewing begins to doubt when he finds he is the last tree left on the lot. Dia Calhoun's Christmas fantasy for readers of all ages was inspired by her compassion for the homeless trees left after Christmas.

"This year, five-year-old Treewing is surprised and excited to be told that he has a 'special destiny.' He is to bring hope and joy to a fatherless boy, to the bereaved and embittered mother of a dead soldier, and to a large group of homeless people. His faith is tested many times, but in the end, the Christmas Deer is proven right."—School Library Journal
