This is a book I loved to read to my children at Christmas time when they were little. It is a delightful story. We loved the illustrations because Sven Nordqvist added all kinds of interesting "creatures." We loved the ending, and whenever we read it we wanted to make gingerbread!

Year after year, this remains my grandchildrens' first pick for Christmas reading. Festus and his cat Mercury have me so charmed that I don't mind at all the request to read this story repeatedly during every Christmas season. What a good example is put before the readers of the true meaning of Christmas and the spirit of neighborly giving. This is accomplished with such clever development that there is not a trace of smug, self-satisfying oratory to the lesson of love. It's easy to see that simple generosity and kindly spirit are the real ingredients to make a successful holiday.

This book is fun on so many levels. The art work is wonderful with such a sense of action and whimsy. The story is one of warmth and community where neighbors come together to help a friend in need. Christmas is simple in this story, based on relationship, the way we all wish it could be.
