5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure to Read Again and Again Nov. 6 2001
By A Customer
I debated whether or not this book was worth the price, since we already owned and loved Jan Brett's The Wild Christmas Reindeer and I wasn't familiar with the other six stories in this edition. But after reading the glowing editorial reviews on this site, I ordered it anyway.
From the day it arrived at our house three weeks ago, it has been my two-year-old daughter's favorite possession. She begs me several times a day to read it to her, and I gladly comply. We stretch out on the bed with this oversize book across our laps, and happily journey to Jan Brett's magical world of snow, elves, reindeer, trolls, and Christmas joy. Most of the double-page spreads are a feast for the eyes.
I particularly enjoy The Twelve Days of Christmas and The Night Before Christmas. The illustrations in the former are charming, e.g., "the three French hens" are gussied up in Marie Antoinette gowns and white pompadour wigs, the "eleven ladies dancing" are flamenco dancers in vivid reds and pinks. The latter is set in a beautiful Victorian home and illustrated with amazingly intricate detail and brilliant colors.
As one who revels in wintry weather, I'm sure I will enjoy escaping into this book all year round, especially when it's hot and humid outside. I tell my daughter to "be very careful" when she handles this book, as I hope to still have it around when I am an old lady. To me, it's an heirloom.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lavish Treasury Nov. 18 2002
By Terrie
This big, bountiful treasury of Christmas stories by talented author and illustrator Jan Brett brings the full over-sized glory of seven beloved wintry tales together in one colorful book. The best-selling books that are included in this treasury are The Mitten, The Wild Christmas Reindeer, Trouble with Trolls, The Twelve Days of Christmas, The Hat, Christmas Trolls, and The Night Before Christmas. Brett's signature bold details and bright colors bring the Scandinavian traditions and style, typical of her work, magically to life. Reindeer and big Malamute dogs, mischievous trolls, hedegehogs, and children have adventures in the snowy North that will have you turning the pages all through the winter holidays. This is indeed a treasury and should not be missed. The stories are fun and full of action and the illustrations are second to none. This book is a lovely investment destined to be a family tradition that can be passed down through the generations, creating memories as it goes.
