Charlotte accidentally sends her Mum's shopping list to Father Christmas, instead of her own wish list and so she has quite a surprise when she opens her stocking on Christmas morning. But in fact, the things that Father Christmas has left for Charlotte are exactly right, because she has been worrying about her animal friends out in the snow with nothing to eat. Charlotte's kind-heartedness is rewarded with a surprise at the bottom of her stocking — something that is perfect for a little girl who loves animals.
