I have enjoyed this story since I was a kid. Any time you feel the Christmas spirit is lost in all the hullabaloo of the season, 15 minutes reading this story on the sofa some evening is all it takes to bring that spirit back to you and your family. Emmet and his mom both experience giving up their own wishes to make each other happy, and find that happiness is not about having things, but about love and friendship. All ages, and both boys and girls will find things to enjoy about this story. Not corny, just a great story that never gets old.

This story is incredibly sweet! It's about Emmet Otter and his Ma trying to scrape together enough money for a Christmas present for each other. As each risks everything to surprise the other, a touching adventure unfolds in which they learn the true meaning wealth. Beautiful illustrations and fun animal characters, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Find Aug. 6 2013
By MidwestMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was one of my favorite Christmas Books from my childhood. It's now out of print, so I was really happy to find it and be able to give it to my husband for Christmas. It's a sweet story about what's really important about Christmas. The illustrations are lovely, and I hope to see my children grow to love this as much as I do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the movie. March 24 2013

My wife wanted this to augment the Jim Henson TV special. The artwork is nice, but the story is a bit weak. I think that Henson productions took the story to a new level.
