They are dazzled by hundreds of decorated Christmas trees, a Musical Nativity, a Santa Parade, an Upside Down House, and many more attractions.
But Bella ends up having an unexpected adventure of her own as she dances with pot-bellied Santas, discovers a palace made entirely out of glass, wanders into an intriguing puzzle room, and treks for miles to find shelter on a snowy night.
Can Bella find her way back to granny Sylta’s house in time for Christmas dinner?
Lost in Christmas Wonderland is a story about courage, kindness, friendship, the importance of family, and the magic of Christmas
Annabelle lives in London. The inspiration for her book came after she visited Winter Wonderland in London’s Hyde Park in November 2019 with her mum, dad, little brother Andre, and granny Sylta.
It was here she first saw an Upside Down House and had heaps of fun filming and visiting all of the rooms. Annabelle was so fascinated that she decided to vlog about it. Click here to watch the video.
Shortly after her visit, she thought how fun it would be to write a story about a girl who visits a Christmas theme park with some friends and goes on a little adventure.
Outside of school, Annabelle enjoys playing with her brother, vlogging about books that she’s read, vlogging about places she’s visited on her Annabelle Presents platform, and making up dance routines to songs that are trending on Tiktok. When she wants to have a giggle, she plays Guess Who with her mum.
She also likes to bake cookies and her favourite Caribbean coconut fried bakes. Her favourite authors are Alesha Dixon, Jaqueline Wilson, David Walliams and Ben Miller. She also likes reading magazines; Cocoa Girl and is a subscriber of First News For Kids which are her favourites.
This is Annabelle’s first book, and she hopes you like it.
