Simon and Schuster, do you see these prices??? I am writing this not as a review, but as a sort of petition to the publisher, to get this book back in print. I hope that this works ... new generations of children deserve to love this book as much as ours has! If you agree, please select "Yes".

As another reviewer said, we read this book every single year at Christmas. The "snitcher" steals all the cookie sprinkle and everyone is looking for them to decorate Christmas cookies. The little boy follows a sprinkle trail to find the sprinkles and teach the snitcher how to share. I, too, am looking for a book for me and my children as grandma is keeping her copy for her house. A must have.

What are Christmas cookies without sprinkles? This book addresses the question and throws in a lesson about sharing and the Christmas spirit at the same time. This was my all time favorite Christmas story as a child. I read it over and over again every year. I am currently looking for my own copy of the book so my Mom can keep the copy she read to us to share with all of her grandchildren. Precious story, wonderfully illustrated!

I have been trying to buy this for my youngest child, lol [she is thirty] and for myself to read to seven grandkids. I bought this for said youngest when she was about ten, and it was her favorite book. Her nephew, my oldest grandchild now 19 ripped it when he was a baby. No fair prince is online for a copy. Hundreds of dollars is way out of line, reads 'gouge' to me. I agree with the writer that suggests we pursue the publishers to reprint, it would be about time. Join the party, how can we get started?

Someone stole all the Christmas cookie sprinkles. Follow the sprinkles with the little boy who finds the Snitcher, a sweet, but misguided hairy bird in Lederhosen and convinces him to return the sprinkles in time for Christmas. All of the town's bakers hold their cookie sheets out as the Snitcher flies by, spreading the joy of sprinkles to all the good people.

I have been looking for this book everywhere. My mom used to read it to us as kids, and now that I am a mother myself I would love nothing more than to share this wonderful book with my son. If anyone can help me get this book I would love it!!
