Book Review by Shelley A. Leedahl

Illustrator/publisher A.E. Matheson has done something big. She’s teamed whimsical illustrations and a fanciful conversation lifted from “real-life”…and created a delightful—and most unusual!—Christmas-related story that spotlights childhood imagination and belief.

I hadn’t even reached the first page of text before I was mesmerized . . . continue reading.

I loved the child’s simple logic, and Matheson’s images of “the gift” are delightful!
