This classic Christmas story and poem collection combines traditional favorites by Charles Dickens, Louisa May Allcott, Hans Christian Andersen, and Clement C. Moore with modern classics. Each story has been chosen especially to illustrate a Christmas theme. Illustrated in full color, the stories and poems have been carefully chosen to reflect the real spirit of Christmas.
