Allison's Christmas Present
by Denis Plew
Two days before Christmas, Allison, a small eight year old girl, was out ice skating on her homemade ice rink in her back yard. She was practicing backward turns when she fell hard on the ice. Her mother found her unconscious on the ice. But Allison found herself cold and frightened near the north pole. She was worried about how she was going to make it back home for Christmas.
