Certainly meant for wrestling fans (others would miss all the in-jokes and probably not care about the story otherwise), but well written and nicely illustrated. A good moral to boot. A worthy addition to a wrestling fan's library.

A Most Mizerable Christmas by Mick Foley is a Christmas story about Miz, a kid who has bullied all the other kids on Wrescal Lane for years and still manages to get onto Santa's good boy list. All the other kids are afraid of Miz and will not go outside and play due to the fear that Miz will do something to them. However, when a new kid arrives in town he helps Miz see the error of his selfish ways. Santa also brings in reinforcements in a form of one very muscular elf. This is my pick for the C ...more
Expressive in both rhyme and illustrations, this picture book shows a mean little boy getting exactly what’s coming to him for Christmas. With pointed emphases on acceptable and unacceptable behaviors, a tough elf who pulls no punches and a jolly old elf who’s sick to the teeth of Miz’s nastiness and selfishness, this is a fine picture book for people who are bored with the usual treacle that floods the shelves every Xmas.

The illustrations in watercolor are very good, with bold outlines and clea

Our family are big WWE fans, and so I bought my boys this book last Christmas. I think some of the words are a little bit too advanced for my four-year-old, and the story itself is on the longer side for a true "kids" book. However, they love the illustrations and the rhyming pattern, as well as the cameo appearances by their favorite wrestlers. Overall an enjoyable tale with a good moral for the kids.

In the spirit of Christmas and the WWE this makes for an interesting read. Written in rhyme and watercolor illustrations featuring a few wrestlers, this story moralizes the importance of friendship. This is a great read for boys especially who need something a little more "macho" to appreciate good values. It is a fun read.
