This book is almost of a 3 1 2 for me it s a little long and the letter excerpts are not seamless but the tongue in cheek humor is so much fun, I just couldn t write this one off Some of the word crafting is genius and the twist and turns can be hilarious The comedic story model it follows is also excellent Though I see some hiccups in this book, there is still much I can learn from it.Reading this book has motivated me to send the original Peterkin classic to my Kindle I m curious The Peterkins are a mess They want to surprise their neighbors and relatives with a beautiful Christmas tree, but the tree is too tall and they have no ornaments and it s hard to play the piano sitting outside in the snow.but there is always the Lady from Philadelphia to help them Best part humor Ages 8 12. I read this short story in A Christmas Treasury It is a silly sort of story though I can see it delighting children I m not familiar with the author Lucretia Hale but I think I will look her up. This is an entertaining and silly tale about a family s preparations for Christmas The story doesn t make very much sense, but I suppose it isn t supposed to It s the first story we ve read about the Peterkins family and I ve just discovered that these stories go back to the 1800s The illustrations are wonderful and remind us of Wendy Anderson Halperin s work on the Cobble Street Cousins series The story is a bit long for a picture book, but would be appropriate for older children We enjoyed reading this book together. This hilarious illustrated chapter from a children s novel is reminiscent of Amelia Bedelia. I wrote about the Peterkin s Thanksgiving recently Their Christmas adventures are just as entertaining This book is a hoot As always, Halperin doesn t disappoint Check it out.
