A truly heart warming Chirstmas story sure to awaken the child in all of us. Kids will love the story of Holly's adventures and her wonderful friends. The illustrations are beautiful I only wish they were in color in all their glory like in the picture book but they are still breathtaking as they are. This will be a book you and you're kids will want to make a Christmas tradition to read every year.
Very lovely story and thinking back to when I was attempting to read it to my 10 year old, am sorry to say that neither one of us wanted to continue to slog through the cumbersome writing to find out what happened to all the characters. That is too bad. It had the potential to be a great classic but falls short. All in all, it was a great disappointment.
