Publisher's Weekly Review

A Christmas Stocking Story by Hilary Knight, originally published in 1963 as part of the Christmas Nutshell Library, is now available as a full-scale picture book. Enlarged art and the same succinct rhyming text relay the humorous story about a stocking mix-up that wreaks havoc on an animal community. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
