(Please Note: Probably nothing in this preface will make any sense to you unless you have previously read Cassie Havens and A Christmas Carol. Just so you know. Sorry about that.)
This book does not, strictly speaking, exist. And only two people have ever read the original version: Cassie Hevans and Naomi 'Smith'. And for very good reasons, it should stay that way.
(Well. Or, alternatively, many people once knew of this book, but have now forgotten it. Hmm. Kind of. It is a bit confusing.)
Anyway. Several people have asked me what The Christmas Monkeys would have been like to read – if it actually still existed. So, after long conversations with Cassie, I have pieced together the following. I hope you enjoy it.

P.S. WARNING: For obvious reasons, this book is NOT The Christmas Monkeys. It would be far too hazardous to ever recreate that book.
Therefore, please do not try to alter this book in any way!
In particular, do NOT change its title to The Christmas Monkeys. That would be very dangerous!
P.P.S. As the original was written in British (Dickensian) English, those spellings have been retained throughout. Expect to see a lot of ou words.
