I liked this book partly because the main character, Lionel, is a bit of a grump and he's a bit self-centered and at one point pushed kids out of the way to try to get where he needs to go. It isn't that I want to condone that behavior. I don't, and the book doesn't reward that behavior either, but I also like that the story doesn't demand perfection from children.

The bigger thing though, and better, is that the book doesn't just argue the "it is better to give than to receive" line like I expected. In fact the book demonstrates that sometimes giving can be a bit of a problem. Lionel catches a glimpse of how parents can end up feeling worry and stress because they can't afford to buy the children what they'd like to give them. Giving can be a problem when you don't have much.

In the story it isn't Lionel's job to solve the economic problems of the parents but to learn to recognize that the gifts he might ask for aren't the things that will make him happy. His expectations change and he realizes it is friendship - a completely non-monetary thing - that matters most.

Lionel feels alone but he manages (eventually) to recognize that others are lonely too, and that he can help make them less lonely too. He learns that he can find joy in singing Christmas carols, reading Christmas stories and visiting those in the hospital. Even just being smiled at can make a person's day, as the story shows through the subplot of Lionel's crush on a classmate.

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, and I wrote the above review as part of a longer blog post about the book.

When I was given the opportunity to review this book, I jumped at the chance because I love Christmas stories, and this one looked cute. It was so cute. Without giving too much away, the story is about Lionel, a poor kid that always gets picks on. His family is even mean to him. Until recently he never even had a best friend until Skip moved to town. This is a good story for kids to read, especially the spoiled kiddos (kids are meant to be spoiled, I spoil my niece and nephew.). It asks the question that we should all be asking ourselves this time of year, What is more important to us? Do we care more about what we want or what we already have? This is really hard for kids to understand, I think. Especially when they believe in the magic of Christmas. This book does a great job of answering that question, and there is even a visit to a very jolly man in a red suit.
The book was well written and easy to follow. It kept my attention and it will definitely keep the attention of your little ones. As Christmas gets closer and my niece and nephew want every toy they see advertised I am going to read them this book.

Paul R. Hewlett has written a real winner with his latest book Lionel's Christmas Adventure. I have enjoyed reading about Lionel and his adventures in his first two books, and Lionel's character just keeps getting better. Lionel is the awkward kid, the one who others enjoy making the punch line to their jokes. In this adventure, Lionel wishes for something special for Christmas but knows there is little to no chance he'll really get what he wants. That is until he makes a wish with his magical Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun and realizes what he wishes for and what he really wants might not be the same thing. Join Lionel on his latest adventure and come to know the real meaning of Christmas in a fun and loving way!

Lionel's Christmas Adventure is a charming story that follows Lionel Snodgrass, a 12-year old boy, as he is given a gentle reminder about the true meaning of Christmas. Author, Paul R Hewlett, uses humor to deliver an important message. The story flows along very quickly and will provide an entertaining Christmas story for young readers to enjoy.

Look at Lionel up there! Isn't he just adorable? I have not read any of the other books about Lionel and his adventures but after reading this one, I am going to do just that. Love that little guy!

All Lionel thinks about and wants for Christmas is a Turbo 5000 sled. It's kind of pricey but that doesn't matter to him, it's what he wants and he feels like he deserves it. He does have a Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun foot, his good luck charm. It is magical but, well, unpredictable, granting his wishes in it's own weird way.

Lionel's best friend, Skip and his family are like a second family to him. They invite Lionel to come over and spend Christmas day with them. He's hoping they will be the ones to get him the Turbo 5000 sled, even though he knows they can't afford it. But they have different ideas about how to spend Christmas.

Lionel does use his Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun foot to wish for what he has always wanted but he couldn't have imagined how it would show him that the sled isn't what he really wanted. What an adventure it takes him on and shows him what Christmas is really all about.

I loved reading about Lionel and his adventure. And I love a good Christmas story. I got both in this one amazing book! This book is geared for the 6-10 age group and would be a great read for boys in that age range. I am excited to get a hold of more Lionel books and read about his other adventures and to see what other lessons he, and the reader, learns.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
