THE SNOW ANGEL by Andrew Martineau

£4.00

On Christmas Eve, Vidalia, an eleven-year-old girl, is awakened by an intruder dressed as Santa Claus. He is taking her T.V., presumable to repair it. She doubts his assertions that he is, in fact, Santa, and she even finds that she craves his company. Jo, Vidalia’s mother, does not see him, and we learn that Glen, the intruder, may only be a figment of Vidalia’s imagination. We also discover what happened the previous Christmas Eve when Vidalia’s father was told to move out. Glen leaves, but he shortly returns with a Christmas present for his new friend.
