A Christmas Carol from the Author: Charles Dickens. "Merry Christmas! What right have you to be merry? You're poor enough." "Come, then", returned the nephew gaily. "What right have you to be dismal? You're rich enough." With his world-famous story “A Christmas’ Carol”, Charles Dickens humorously demonstrates that money alone does not buy happiness. His protagonist, grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge, is haunted by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. The spine-chilling night visitors confront the old miser with his cold-heartedness. When Scrooge awakes the next morning, nothing is as it was before…

Hilfe Die Herdmanns Kommen from the Author: Barbara Robinson. Das kann ja heiter werden! Im ganzen Viertel ist man sich einig: Die Kinder der Familie Herdmann sind die schlimmsten Kinder aller Zeiten. Sie lügen, klauen, rauchen Zigarren (auch die Mädchen), bringen die Nachbarn zur Verzweiflung und können ein Klassenzimmer mit Hilfe ihrer halbwilden Katze in Rekordzeit vollkommen leer fegen. Zu allem Überfluss haben sie es auch noch geschafft, alle Hauptrollen im weihnachtlichen Krippenspiel zu bekommen. Womöglich steht damit die schlimmste Aufführung aller Zeiten bevor. Der etwas andere Weihnachtsklassiker von Barbara Robinson, übersetzt von Erfolgsduo Paul und Nele Maar, mit neuen, ebenso pfiffigen wie farbigen Illustrationen von Anke Kuhl, die ihre ganz eigene Geschichte im Detail erzählen.

The Carpenter S Gift from the Author: David Rubel. Family, friendship, and the spirit of giving are at the heart of this inspiring picture book. Opening in Depression-era New York, The Carpenter's Gift tells the story of eight-year-old Henry and his out-of-work father selling Christmas trees in Manhattan. They give one of their leftover trees to construction workers building Rockefeller Center. That tree becomes the first Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, the finest Henry has seen when adorned with homemade decorations. Henry wishes on the tree for a nice, warm house to replace his family's drafty, one-room shack. Through the kindness of new friends and old neighbors, Henry's wish is granted, and he plants a pinecone to commemorate the event. As an old man, Henry repays the gift by donating to Rockefeller Center the enormous tree that has grown from that pinecone. After bringing joy to thousands as a beautiful Christmas tree, its wood will be used to build a home for a family in need. Written by children's nonfiction author David Rubel, in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity, The Carpenter's Gift features charming, full-color illustrations by Jim LaMarche.
