Top Customer Reviews
"Grandma's Christmas Sweater" by Marissa Ames - Have you ever received a knitted Christmas sweater as a gift? This tale of dark humor will make you wonder just what lurks in the bottom of your closet.
"'Mary' Christmas" by Joni Lynn - Have you ever wondered about those neighbors who overdo their holiday decorating? A deliciously dark and creepy tale that just may answer that question!
Both of these stories reminded me of the Goosebumps books I have enjoyed in the past.
"On December 25th" by Eric Martell - A very intriguing tale that will keep you thinking long after the story is over.
"The Little Mouse" by Lisa Shambrook - A charming little tale which made me think of the great stop-motion animation Christmas specials we all grew up with.
"Claustrophobia" by Michael Wombat - What would happen if Santa couldn't get down the chimney? This extremely funny story had me laughing till the end!
These are just five of the wonderful pieces you will encounter but the book as a whole does its job well, and that is to put you into the spirit of the holidays. The book is also a great value! Seventy-five stories gives it some weight and it's nice to see that the publisher is donating all proceeds to benefit a school library. Well done to all the talented people who contributed to this wonderful collection!
if I were asked to pick a favourite I don't think I could do it. but I can narrow it down to the horror section. some of those stories are delightfully warped and highly imaginative. some are colourful and one of them is even colourful in a way that is wicked.
If I were to recommend this to another reader I would suggest it in such a way as to say pay attention to the names you are reading- each of the writers- and remember those because im sure there are plenty of works available on the kindle with those names. Each story is like a flavor for you to get used to and try more of. you will get to find out more about them at the back of the book, even the designer who did some wonderful work inside and out.
This is a great fun for the whole family and way to bring togetherness during the holiday season!
