From the Inside Flap
Petunia's determination to save Charles, even if it means posing as Santa Claus, results in "one of the simplest, funniest, and most original of Christmas stories," wrote the Chicago Tribune when this book was originally published in 1952. A yuletide classic by a Caldecott Medal winner, Petunia's Christmas is still making children laugh as it shows the true spirit of Christmas.
