Pros: The cover is puffy/squishy which gives it a childlike allure. The pictures are both realistic and cartoonish which allows a certain type of fantasy meets reality type of feel. I thoroughly appreciate the imagery of the book as it is something that will not be outgrown. I should also say this book has a nostalgic feel to me as pictures somewhat remind me of a book I owned when I was little.
Cons: The binding feels a little cheap, like if I were to handle it a little too roughly (or just simply over time) the pages would fall loose. The pages themselves feel very thin. I'm very nervous reading the book around my 1 year old as I feel one quick move on her part would shred the page in seconds.
Overall a great buy for the money and a great pictorial rendition of a classic Christmas poem.
The reindeer look nice.
The poem also is abridged (something I didn't realize at the time of purchase) as it has been made politically correct with the part of Santa and his pipe having been removed.
Why can't someone illustrate this poem/story with an awesome looking well dressed Santa, real looking reindeer and sleigh, and nice inside and outside details...and use the complete poem?

When reading to a child, I like to point out details in the picture that have been mentioned in the text, but in in these illustrations one is struggling to find an exact match. However it's a wonderful book to share with children, simply to talk about the pictures, but in addition I've just ordered a copy of the Gorsline version at £2.50, which is more faithful to, and enhances the poem itself.
I have a favour to ask whoever reads this. I read a Lee Childs book a long time ago. The book featured Jack Reacher, but the story line included his brother Joe Reacher, who was incarcerated in prison and whom Jack visited. I am trying to get ALL the Reacher novels and in looking through your library I have chosen the ones I need to order. I have read all the synopses, but none of the ones I wish to order have this story. Can you help me find the book I am looking for?
I have looked on a lot of web sites and now am lost as to what to do next. Please help.
