The story is so timeless that it is not just for Christmas. The real theme is how Morris, the littlest child, somewhat excluded by his older siblings tho not in a mean way, gets to have the best present of all and be included by his siblings. That makes it sound heavy and it isn't at all.
And by the way, as the author also does the Max and Ruby books, I explained the resemblance by saying Morris was Max's cousin.
UPDATE: Nearly two years later my six year old still asks me to read this book from time to time. He enjoys the "magic" of that bag & the way that the siblings react. It's fun to read it to him and though he knows exactly what will happen I still see his face light up.
