Célèste Eloise at Christmastime


message 3: by Sarah (new)

Sarah That's a great one! Have you seen the movie? It's quite charming.


message 4: by Célèste (new)

Célèste I haven't seen it. I should.


message 6: by David (new)

David Jacks Belstarr The Lost Toymaker has risen from 265 to 51st quickly. This looks like the book for Christmas 2012.


message 7: by Amy (new)

Amy I love the books that come at Christmas time. The books usually make you feel good and have happy endings.


message 8: by Heather (last edited Dec 03, 2012 06:33AM) (new)

Heather I know of one book, but I can't remember the title... it starts with a man getting lost in the snow on a back country road. It tells the entire story about where Santa Claus came from. In it, he uses a special bridge that connects the world he lives in to ours. There's this dark force that was caused by someone he knew in life. It tries to destroy the bridge. At the end, the man who started "writing" the book, after encountering Santa Claus and learning about him, tells the reader to share the book with as many people as possible, to keep the Christmas spirit alive.

Does anyone know what book that is?

I found it! The Christmas Chronicles: The Legend of Santa Claus (I'm failing at linking it, though.)


message 9: by Lexie (new)

Lexie Mason We're really loving Moving Christmas: A Frank Duffy Adventure. Great illustrations, good message for kids now that they're a bit older about global warming. A modern twist on the holiday book. Plus, the kids enjoy it!


message 10: by Wanda (new)

Wanda Bad!Bad!Bad! This list is polluted with a book having nothing to do with Christmas -- A Visit from Voltaire. A librarian could remove it! (I am a librarian.)

Shall I slice away?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Oh, please do!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads 16 reviews, 24 votes, yeah, that's convincing.


message 13: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Dec 11, 2013 08:33PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed for being, according to the blurb, a story about Easter:

The Tale of Three Trees

Removed for not being Christmas stories:

A Visit from Voltaire
The End of May Road

Additionally, I don't remember Christmas in any Narnia book except The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Am I forgetting something?


message 14: by Wanda (new)

Wanda Thank you Susanna. You are not forgetting anything re The Lion. Axe away!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removing: the Narnia books except The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.


message 16: by Penny (new)

Penny My vote 'The Tricksters' by Margaret Mahy is definitely a Christmas book (a NEW ZEALAND Christmas book), so please don't remove Susanna...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads No worries; I'm being very cautious.
