Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book repeatedly as a child and was so upset when my book went missing. Finding a copy of it again as an adult was such a great feeling. The stories are beautiful and I would reccommend it to anyone who wants their child to feel the magic of Christmas. Reading one story a night as Christmas approaches is the perfect way to set the mood.

A Beautiful Christmas Short Stories Collection 7 Dec. 2010
By Mamunia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was given this book by my mother when I was in my teens. At the time I thought they were nice little stories, but it's as an adult that I found true pleasure from this little collection. These Christmas stories are old-fashioned, pure, magical tales that fill your heart with the joy, love, and mysteries of the holiday season. My favorite stories are those that take place on Christmas Eve, a most magical and awesome night, when only little mice and angel dollies stir, when the world holds it's breath for the coming of baby Jesus. This is just a beautiful collection and everything about it is the perfect compliment to the season. I save this book to read at the holidays (of course), and it fills me with a host of fiery sunsets on cold snowy pine trees, of moonlight casting fairy sparkles on frosted windows, of enjoying a cozy fire and a simple meal with loved ones, and of the quiet stillness, hope, and magic of the night before Christmas. This book is wonderful for any age and would be so sweet to read to children in the days leading up to, and including, Christmas day.
Whimsical and enchanting 7 Dec. 2009
By N. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was given this book for Christmas from Santa at the age of six in 1982 and it's a sign of how much I loved it that it's still in relatively good condition with its paperback cover still intact. I must have read it every single Christmas. (and still do, I confess) It's the warmest, coziest rendition of Christmas spirit that I've ever come and I cannot understand why Alison Uttley has been allowed to have been forgotten by readers.
My favourite story was Sam Pig's christmas card that he painted with paints that tasted of the berries and woodland offerings from which the colours had been made.
Uttley was a most beautiful, whimsical writer and her animal stories are far more enchanting than those of Beatrix Potter - I suppose it's just a pity Uttley wasn't also an illustrator to boot. I wish a publisher would bring out new editions of her works so that today's children could know her. I'm just glad I still have my old copy so that I can treat my own children to her unique Christmas sparkle!
