This story brought me back to the times when I thought animals spoke and Santa delivered toys on Christmas Eve. Martin leads us to a child's fantasy world where anything can happen.

This book does a wonderful job of conveying Christmas spirit! It also addresses issues of dealing with a dying parent and friendship. This book is very uplifting and you can feel the Christmas magic as you read it! It can definitely help reassure children about the magic of Christmas! I also look at my dog very differently now too! Can't wait til Christmas Eve....

i was in the mood for a good christmas book to get me in the spirit and this book was perfect! i loved this book. i love how it wasnt a perfectly happy ending and everything was all better at the end of the book but it ended happy in its own way. i am happy how it delt with the issue of a parent dieing and the parent didnt all of the sudden get better cause that was her christmas wish. i am a child who lost my mother and death does happen and you cant wish for them to get better and it happens and i was happy ann m martin let kids know that. thanks for such a great book!!! i enjoyed it so much
