This charming little volume is only 5 1/4' x 5 1/4" and would certainly fit into a stocking but I suggest you make a treat of it before Christmas. It is illustrated with vintage Victorian images filled with the innocence and magic of Christmas. It contains two Christmas stories from The Bible, the chapter from "The Birds' Christmas Carol" where baby Carol gets her name, a chapter from "Little Women", the famous "Yes, Virginia There Is a Santa Claus" letter, some Charles Dickens Christmas NOT from "A Christmas Carol", Eleanor Roosevelt's memory of Christmas, and Hans Christian Andersen's "The Last Dream of the Old Oak Tree". Best of all is an excerpt from O. Henry's "Gift of the Magi." The excerpts will hopefully whet your appetite for the complete versions of the stories. The scope of this tiny book is just to "taste" a sample.
The recipes are DELISH! The Egg Nog and the Crispy Gingerbread Cookies are especially fine. My favorite is Red and White Peppermint Cake. There are so many good things packed in this little book that it must have a bit of the same magic that Santa's toy-sack has!
