Tough Cookie: A Christmas Story by Edward Hemingway

Once upon a time, while Fox was visiting the land of Holiday Treats, a little cookie—still warm from the bakery oven—burst out the front door looking sweet and ready to be devoured. But, as it turns out, Cookie is not as fast as he thinks and when Fox finally catches him, they’re both in for a big surprise: Sugar Cookie does not taste delicious—and he’s certainly not fit to be eaten. What’s an unsavory cookie to do? Is there another option for this not-so-sweet treat?

Munchkin Review: A fun and very cute take on the story of the Gingerbread Man.

Merry Christmas Little Elliot by Mike Curato

Little Elliot the elephant isn’t quite sure what Christmas spirit is, but he suspects he doesn’t have it. Not even a visit to Santa Claus can put Elliot in the right mood. But when chance blows a letter for Santa into Elliot and Mouse’s path, the two friends discover what Christmas is all about–and make a new friend, too. A heartfelt celebration of the season of giving! Perfect for sharing around the holidays.

Munchkin Review: Little Elliot was so adorable. There were some funny moments where it almost seemed like Little Elliot just couldn’t catch a break. But everything works out in the end.

A Unicorn Named Sparkle’s First Christmas by Amy Young

It’s Sparkle’s first Christmas and Lucy is showing him how to celebrate. Make a snowman. Check. Make a unicorn snowman. Check. Hang stockings, make cookies, and, of course–buy presents! (But don’t eat them.) Check. In pure Sparkle fashion, nothing goes as planned, but Lucy ends up learning that love– not presents– is what Christmas is all about.

Munchkin Review: Who doesn’t like unicorns? I actually liked that Sparkles is not your typical unicorn.

⭐⭐⭐ 1/2
