This is one of the best Christmas books I've never heard of!!!!! It is such a sweet, sweet story. Children will be tickled by how each page (each letter to Santa) looks like it was written on a different scrap of paper. Even the barcode on the back of the book looks like it's on a scrap of paper. Adults reading with their children will love seeing James discover the true spirit of Christmas. Totally heart warming, even in its brevity. It should be on every child's holiday reading list!
