Synopsis: Mr. Finnegan Based on Dick Van Dyke. Includes audio CD of story read by Dick Van Dyke!
Dick Van Dyke will forever be remembered as the irrepressible Bert in the classic movie Mary Poppins, dancing with penguins and leaping across rooftops. Now, Dick Van Dyke will touch a whole new generation of fans with the Christmas picture book Mr. Finnegan’s Giving Chest. Featuring 3D illustrations from the forthcoming DVD (2007), this whimsical book has a Polar-Express look and a magical story that will delight readers of all ages.
Mr. Finnegan (Dick Van Dyke) is no ordinary toymaker. His providential meeting with Maggie, a resentful girl who doesn’t believe in the magic of Christmas, is the beginning of a series of miracles that will change her heart forever.
"Do you think Santa’s the only one who can give us the gifts we want?" said Mr. Finnegan. "Santa’s presents simply remind us of a much greter gift, a gift inside ourselves." He lifted the fragile wooden chest by its recently repaired handle and placed it in a wagon.
"What’s that old thing?" Maggie asked sourly.
"This ‘old thing’ is the Giving Chest. It once carried precious gifts in a new-born king. I need you to deliver it to someone."
Maggie brightened. "Is there a treasure inside?"
Mr. Finnegan raised a bro. "For some people, indeed there is."
