Angelina stays after school to prepare for the Christmas show. On her way home, Christmas lights are shining in the windows of all the houses -- except for the one where old Mr. Bell lives all alone. Angelina decides to take some Christmas cookies to Mr. Bell, but Cousin Henry refuses to go with her. He has something else in mind for his cookies! What happens next results in some magic moments and the discovery that there is a Father Christmas living in their own village.

This is one of our favorite Angelina books. The story teaches us a great lesson of kindness and generosity. I can't think of a nicer Christmas story for a young child.
As with the other Angelina Ballerina books, this one is beautifully and meticulously illustrated. The story itself is also lovely, with a wonderful message of kindness very fitting for the Christmas season. My three-yr-old and I love this book.
I bought this book for my 2 year granddaughter. She loved it and had me read it over again. The artwork is adorable.
Excellent book from an excellent author and an excellent illustrator. This book has a group of charming characters with a delightful story.
