These fun holiday short stories are amusing for adults and children, whether read quietly in a cozy chair by the fire or aloud to your loved ones. You’ll love the charming illustrations, too!
As Santa Claus himself has said of 5 Little Stories at Christmas Time, it’s “…wondrous, delightful holiday tales for the child within us all.” And wouldn’t he know? He knows when you’re sleeping and he knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good and lots of other stuff, like which books are best paired with cookies and milk . . . or tea . . . coffee. 5 Little Stories at Christmas Time is perfect for that.
These are stories for kids, their parents and anyone else who loves a creative tale. Like The Christmas Song says for “kids from 1 to 92” but even if you are 103, you’ll want to read it. It’s OK, we won’t tell.
Whether you’re a kid now or you used to be one, 5 Little Stories at Christmas Time is a book that will capture your imagination and take you there. Where? Christmas Time! Okay, that’s really a When but the Who and the What in this delightful book of short stories are the How you get there.
Betcha didn’t know there’s a super secret ritual at the North Pole that requires a Designated Diver…no, DIVER, not driver. But we can’t tell you more than that here, it’s just too secret.
Do you know the name of Santa’s other reindeer? No, we don’t mean Rudolph and we don’t mean Olive. Yup, there’s another one and you’ve never heard his name before.
You probably didn’t even know that Santa puts up his own Christmas tree and what HE uses for ornaments. It’s not what you think.
These are only a few of the untold wonders of Christmas that will be revealed to you in 5 Little Stories at Christmas Time—and ONLY in this book, we might add.
You’ll encounter a bunch of memorable and fascinating characters:
Here’s Tony. He’s the kid who wants ALL the presents. And he gets them. But that’s not the end of the story. In fact, it’s only the beginning.
A 6-year-old girl asks Santa for a thermonuclear device. Yeah, you read that right!
You’ll meet a devoted Dad who speaks to the family Christmas tree and is surprised when he gets a response.
So pull that big comfy chair closer to the fire and read 5 Little Stories at Christmas Time to your kids or to yourself. It’s a fun, quick read; a little longer than a toboggan ride but shorter than the walk back up that steep snowy hill!
There’s even a preview of another Paul K. Guncheon book, The Story of Miles, an Elf. You’ll get acquainted with Miles in 5 Little Stories at Christmas Time as he advises Santa on some perplexing dilemmas (Yes, Santa does have some challenging days at work!) and, in The Story of Miles, an Elf, you’ll learn more about the life of Miles, Santa’s right-hand man—umm, elf.
