Tinsel is the tale of one little boy who dreams of being the fairy on top of the Christmas tree! He can sing, dance, and wear a sparkly tiara as well as anyone else.


But to get to the top, he’ll have to convince a whole tree of doubting baubles and naysaying ornaments that anyone can shine if they’re given the chance!


Suitable for all ages.
