Christmas Magicby Michael Garland
When lonely Emily tiptoes out of bed on Christmas Eve, she witnesses wild holiday enchantment in action-her cat and dog have learned how to sing "Jingle Bells," a rowdy crowd of mice are baking pies in the kitchen, and the snow-woman Emily built earlier in the day to keep her company has come to life! The best magic of all, however, is in Emily's brand-new friendship with the shy boy next door, which begins when they realize that they alone have witnessed the fantastical late-night happenings.
Michael Garland's stunning illustrations are showcased in the ornate Victorian setting of Emily's home and neighborhood. Infused with warmth and mysterious action, this book is a gentle, joyful reminder that no matter what else the holiday brings, love and friendship hold the true magic of Christmas.

This book will excite any child. My daughter and I read it over and over whether it is the holiday season or not. Wonderful illustrations that will hold the attention of even the youngest reader. Great book to read when you are tired of the traditional Night Before Christmas.
Michael Garland is an excellent illustrator and story teller. In Christmas Magic, he has brought a new and charming twist on a familiar theme, and has created magical images of pleasant memories and Christmas' of yesteryear. I highly reccomend this book.
