The Box of Delights

Strange things begin to happen the minute young Kay Harker boards the train to go home for Christmas. A magical old man has asked Kay to protect the Box of Delights, a box that can travel through time. But Kay is in danger: Abner Brown will stop at nothing to get his hands on it... 

There's snow on the wind, can you hear the wolves running?
