'Charlie the Christmas Camel'

I hope this story becomes a classic holiday family read. It provides lessons in building relationships.

Carol Katrana’s new book, “Charlie the Christmas Camel,” evolved from the inquisitiveness of children wondering what happened to characters on the way to performing in a Christmas pageant.

It's Dec. 21, just three days before the pageant, and Anna Morgan is about to have her busy life turned upside down as she meets a runaway camel named Charlie. Soon they are planning his entry into the pageant. Before they know it, their schemes lead to mishaps and mistruths. Everyone involved with the pageant is in for a big surprise. Charlie and Anna experience funny, tender and trusting moments – and love, forgiveness and acceptance.

The new book provides a simple, poignant source of parenting inspiration and quick, easy-to-remember reminders of how valuable parents are to their children.

According to Katrana, “Charlie the Christmas Camel is a book that takes a common holiday experience and focuses it in a fun new direction giving characters a fun and meaningful adventure. I hope this story becomes a classic holiday family read. It provides lessons in building relationships.

"Charlie the Christmas Camel” (ISBN-13: 978-1477277102; $16.95, released by AuthorHouse) can be ordered online at:, or by calling 1-800-AUTHORS.
