    2. This has a lot of little pieces of many famous Christmas stories. There are a few in their entirety, but for the most part, there are just 'teasers'.

    3. A wonderful book full of Christmas stories from the old classics like Marley's ghost from Dicken's A Christmas carol to old foreign folk tales and legends to more modern stories with up to date festive themes.A great book for reading aloud to children chapter by chapter.All the stories have a moral to them and are filled with Christmas fun and messages.A must read for adults or children for cold winter days.

    4. It was OK. Lots of little stories to make up one book. Some of them ended much too abruptly for me as if there was an end still to be written.OK for a quick and easy Christmas read.
