Barnaby Doyle is a fun-loving kid who, like many children this time of year, is about to burst out of his skin with excitement. However, as much as Barnaby tries to keep his eyes open, he cannot stay awake. As Barnaby drifts into sleep, he dreams of madcap Mummers. After the Mummers disappear to the echoes of a Christmas Carol, the Christmas magic continues... Barnaby wakes to share the joy of Christmas with one and all.

Beni Malone is a clown, playwright and artistic director of Wonderbolt Circus Productions. The Sights Before Christmas is his first children's book.

Marian Frances White is a poet, author and filmmaker who lives in St. John's, Newfoundland. She grew up with Mummers in her life and is thrilled to share this unique Christmas story.
