I liked this book because it told christmas stories:) There were 8 all-new short holiday tales plus a classic. The first story called "Wally's First Christmas" is about a dog who just got adopted from a safe haven shelter. Wally gets into a lot of trouble because of a cat and he gets nervous because he had never experienced what Christmas is liked. The boxes under the tree scared him because it reminded him of what happened when his previous owners had boxes everywhere because they were moving. ...more
I bought this book from my local library not too long ago for only 50 cents. The book has 8 Christmas related stories and although not all of the stories were amazing, it was a nice book with cute Christmas stories. But, there were a few stories in the book that stood out and that I loved. Midnight Gets a Star and Take a Penny, Leave a Penny, in my opinion were both wonderful stories.

And it also includes the classic story, A Visit From St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore. Who doesn't love that
