“This was a delightful book - with a moral to boot! Most families would benefit from reading this together and talking about it. Good lessons to learn for kids AND parents.” – R. Travis, Florida

“Every parent with kids knows the rigors of every-day life and the never-ending battle to keep your life (and your kids) in order. And most of us have made those "idle, scrooge-like" threats at least once. This book captures those true moments in way that every kid and parent can identify with. It's funny, it's fun and it teaches a wonderful Christmas lesson. I've read it to my own kids and to the kids in their classes at school and the vote is unanimous -- they all loved the story!” – C. Anderson, New Jersey

“This story presents a solid message for kids and parents alike, and it does it with humor and grace. The illustrations alone make this book worth buying. I am giving this book to several folks on my Christmas list.” – C. Brennan, NYC

“This is a beautifully written book, and while the message is Christmas, it is equally applicable throughout the entire year. I hope the author writes more books - my grandkids loved it.” – M. Farmer, Texas
