Is a wonderful book by writer and illustrator Jackie Morris that blossomed from the series of Christmas cards she has done each year to benefit the Help Musicians Charity.  She collected all the ones she’s done so far into a book and then hand-crafted an equally exquisite series of interconnected stories to go with each of them.  Her delightfully detailed paintings beg to be poured over and examined for every delicious detail.  Yes, you could read this book aloud to some lucky child, or you can read it silently to your own inner child.  It’s one of those books that sings a siren song about the hours you might spend snuggled up in some peaceful comfy place savoring a truly special read.  Give yourself a treat.
