A Simply Wonderful Christmas: A Literary Advent Calendar
(NorthSouth Oct. 1, 2006)
, 1st Edition edition
With twenty-four stories--""one for each night in December as we count down to Christmas--""this is a perfect book to share with the whole family. The stories are by turns humorous, touching, sad, and sentimental. Some stories tell of Christmas traditions from other countries and cultures that we may not be familiar with. For those, we have included a short piece explaining what that tradition is, where it comes from, and how it ties into our own customs. The lush illustrations from Austrian illustrator Silke Leffler are reminiscent of Zwerger at her best. Complete with a ribbon marker, this is a gift book to treasure for years to come.
