After waiting years to witness some of the special magic that happens Christmas Eve, a kindly old woman finally gets her wish.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I enjoyed the story but found the presentation flawed. Germans use comforters on their beds and not patchwork quilts, yet the woman is shown shaking out a patchwork quilt. In Germany, the Christkindel (Christ child) is the one who brings gifts on Christmas Eve, but he is portrayed looking like a slim, diminutive, American Santa Claus. Also, only a fraction of the many spiders shown have the requisite number of eight legs.
I enjoyed the story but will search for a different version of it before purchasing a copy for myself.
