Reviews:
From KidsBooks NZ review by Lorraine Orman "... it's a real pot-pourri of stories with something for everyone - humour, fantasy, animals, and family-themed stories being the favourites. There's a moving retelling of the nativity story; several funny tales about Santa and his helpers; a handful of spooky stories with ghosts and other nasties; and a whole bunch of plots revolving round Christmas trees, fairies, and presents.

Booksellers NZ by Angela Oliver "... The stories are charming little bites, perfect for a younger reader, or to read aloud with your family. Christmas is truly brought to life. Stories are based in the cold clutches of Antarctica, in places out in space, and in various fantastical realms, but the New Zealand flavour is alive and well in these tales...
