This book is a collection of stories told by celebrities about their childhood memories of Christmas. It is a sweet idea, but not what I was expecting from the title. I actually thought it was going to be folk stories that highlighted the soul of Christmas. I found the artwork touched the soul more than the stories themselves. They mostly focused on the joy of getting that one toy that was really wanted.
