This book is absolutely lovely. Tasha Tudor's trademark corgis are there, her intricate detailed illustrations, and warm feeling of nostalgia. I particularly like this Corgiville book because there are only a few words on each page, but they are high-level. I can read it to my 18-month-old without her getting bored with too many words, but at the same time, she learning to hear and understand beautiful language. Plus, with all the busy-ness of the holiday season, it's nice to be able to sit down with your child and read a quiet, well-done Christmas book together. Overall, the book is wonderful to look at and fun to read--definitely add it to your Tasha Tudor collection!

This is a charming story and the illustrations are painstakingly detailed but VERY blurry. Maybe this latest edition had a different printing process or something. The story is lovely but if the drawings in Corgiville Fair are a 10 these blurry pictures would rank a 3. What a disappointment! As a big Tasha Tudor fan I am dismayed that the producers of the book would put it out in such a state that I would have rate it so poorly.

Tasha Tudor has another winner with Corgiville Christmas - I have all her books - I collect children's books (waiting for those grandkids) and the Corgiville series is fantastic. The story is fun and the illustrations are amazing. I recommend all of her books for your collections.

I like the story, and the book but the illustrations are terrible. It looks like they did not line up the plates correctly and the drawings are blurry. Do not recommend for this price.

I was somewhat disappointed in the drawings in this book, as they seemed not crisp and clear. Also it was apparent that one of the pages was out of order!
Overall, this book did not measure up to expectations. Thank you for the opportunity to express my feelings!

Well, I feel sad to see all the nasty one-star reviews here. I wonder if these people thought for even a moment that an artist's style may change over the years, or that it's possible an elderly woman's hand might not be as steady as it once was, or about the tremendous work, energy and time it would take to illustrate a lengthy book like this? This book was published in 2004, when Tasha Tudor would have been 89 years old. Before complaining about illustrations which are less precise than Corgiville Fair (published in 1971!!), perhaps these individuals could take a moment to marvel at the contributions of Tasha Tudor, and to thank her for sharing this Christmas card with us.

Ms. Tudor's love of animals and old-fashioned values shine through once again in this book. Yes, the illustrations are more free-form/less precise than the books she illustrated decades ago. That is to be expected-- no one's style remains exactly the same over the course of a lifetime.

Many artists struggle with being "type-cast", and it seems some Tasha Tudor fans here are rejecting work that is different from the work of previous decades. As for myself, I'm grateful to have been able to read another sweet Corgi adventure from one of America's most beloved children's book illustrators.

Thank you Tasha Tudor!

I wish the book preview function had been available for this book before I bought it because I wouldn't have bought it. My daughter has a Corgi and I thought this would be a cute book for her to have. The illustrations in this copy are quite poor in quality - very grainy and hard to see. From the reviews I thought they would be spectacular. Maybe I got a bad copy? Who knows? We were quite disappointed!

This book was absolutely charming!!! I grew up with Tasha Tudor books but now that I have a darling Corgi they are just that much more magical!! The little dogs woven into the story mimic exactly what my little Corgi does.
