I bought 2 copies of this book, one for my niece and the other for my nephew. When they arrived, I made sure to put batteries in each of the penlights. (You will need 2 AAA batteries.) Then I turned off all the lights and read the book myself. What a delight! The negative spaces of the cutout become snow covered mountains, filling the wall or ceiling of the room with a completely new world. The story is lovely, but the shadow images are stunning and mesmerizing. These will be hard books to wrap and give away. I will have to buy a copy for myself.

The heart-warming story emphasizes the love of family and the true integrity of Christmas. Each illustration is a work of art in itself with incredibly intricate scenes of stars, evergreen trees, deer and the sleeping village. The whole experience can be enlarged by the accompanying flashlight and shown on the wall to delight both children and adults.

This book will be a Christmas tradition in our house for years to come. My two daughters, ages 4 and 5, were amazed and delighted by the story and images projected on the wall. We are having a lot of fun with this book- I projected "Grandpa" right onto their pillows, and pretended that he was going to sleep with them. This book is pricey because of the detailed, high quality laser cut pages. It is well worth the money!

This is a unique and charming book for Christmas. Though the poem is of mediocre quality, it is good enough, and tells the story of William, watching out the window on Christmas Eve. Each page is a cutout, and the little flashlight that accompanies the book (held on with a velcro strip), lets you read the lines in the dark and illuminate the shadows from these 15 lovely stencils.

Young and old alike will delight in this unique holiday offering.

The idea behind this book is wonderful. Each verse is accompanied by a detailed cut-out. When you shine the flashlight (included) onto the picture, an even more beautiful scene is rendered on your child's dark bedroom wall. We have read it every night since we bought it.
