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 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!

I truly felt that Tasha had painted her heart out in this lovely Christmas story which was a memorial to her beloved corgi Owen. When you look at these pictures - which are painted later in her life, and are a reflection of her evolving style - you can feel the love she had for Owen. I thought they were so endearing - almost magical......as if they were from a dream. This is one of my very favorite books from Tasha, and I am so glad that she published it.

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!

I bought this along with "Corgiville Fair" and "The Great Corgiville Kidnapping". I love Tasha Tudor's artwork and gentle and witty method of storytelling. I also love corgis.

I do agree with some of the comments that the artwork in this book (and Corgiville Kidnapping) are not quite up to Tasha's usual standards. I do not think this is due to any printing errors, so much as Tasha's failing eyesight as she got older. I remember seeing a television program about Tasha in which she was shown working on "The Great Corgiville Kidnapping". You could tell from the shots of her applying the watercolor that the book had a more "sketchy" look than "Corgiville Fair". The drawings are not quite as "finished" as her earlier works, and the color palette was darker.

However, there are still some fine illustrations, and you can see the artistic vision behind even the more sketchier ones. "Corgiville Christmas" is a sweet book for the holidays that I recommend for Tasha's fans and for corgi lovers.
