Someone should make a movie of the main story here because it would be a classic! Simple enough for the very young child but with heart enough for the older reader who has a heart to feel with. I like to read it to myself if I can't find a child to read it to every Christmas.

This book is well worth the reading for children of all ages; especially age 10 years and up. However, children in our day are likely too immature to appreciate or even understand the language or situation these children faced. It is well written and if parents were to pre-read each story then help the child to read these stories it would be a fine. The art work is lovely. The hard bound edition is grand and worth every penny. These stories simply do not ever go out of style. Our kids read this book in their teens. We read each chapter together as a family and still talk of those lovely evenings now part of our family history. There are several separate stories in this book so it makes for several nice adventures each completed in a few days at the most.

George McDonald was a contemporary of Mark Twain but lived in Scotland. They actually were acquainted and while they wrote to children quite often the stories are suitable for any age.

My parents read this book to me as a child, and I loved each and every story. As my own children got older, I started looking for my own copy of this book to read to them. I was very happy to find the very same edition for sale in excellent used condition, and now I am enjoying reading the stories to my children. Although they are called Christmas stories, they are wonderful to read any time of year.

I LOVE George Macdonald. The illustrations are charming and reminiscent of simpler, more innocent times. Only Macdonald could teach you a lesson and give you the feel of a cheeky fairy tale.

We pull our copy out every year and there's a couple of stories like "Uncle Peter" that are favorites....well, the one about Phosie is special, too. Bought some to give as gifts this year to our grown kids.
