The Repair Shop Stories: The Christmas Doll

By Amy Sparkes

Illustrated by Katie Hickey

A heart-warming Christmas tale based on the real story of an evacuee doll, featured on best-loved TV show, The Repair Shop.

Susan is very young when she is evacuated from wartime London and sent to live with a family in the countryside. Unsure of her new surroundings and desperately missing her home, she doesn't hold much hope for the months ahead. Then, on Christmas morning, she is given a doll and Susan thinks this must be the best present she has ever had. Yet standing here now in The Repair Shop, thinking back on her childhood, she realizes that in fact the greatest gift was the kindness bestowed upon her and her ability to remember it always as she holds her precious doll close to her.
