Grade 1-4–This handsome collection of 14 stories includes selections that were previously published and new renditions of old legends and traditional tales. There is a nice balance of well-known classics, such as "The Cratchits' Christmas Dinner" from Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, with lesser-known tales, such as William Dean Howells's 1892 "Christmas Every Day." Other authors include Fiona Waters, Vivian French, and Saviour Pirotta. Whybrow provides a foreword and a cheerful introduction to each selection. While not an essential purchase, the bright illustrations by a variety of artists make this a fine choice for libraries needing another Christmas anthology.–E. M.
