    1. Author the wonderful Roller Skates and illustrator of Miss Rumphius, it's gotta be magical, right? Well, yes, sort of. I do wish there were a note to indicate whether it is a traditional tale or not - apparently King Laurin and the prefatory tale of alpenglow are traditional but I didn't research further. I can't decide how much I like it, but since it's funny and Christmasy and I've never encountered it before, I'll round up. Recommended especially if you like Christmas stories that feature nei [...]

    2. Today I impulsively decided to buy a Christmas story, but only if I could find a good one. (There's an incredible supply of stories involving Santa and his elves, a child who may not get a present, writing a letter to Santa all of which I avoid.) After looking over dozens of titles, I picked several to read, and this was the best of all for several reasons.1) It's the retelling of a tale about King Laurin that Tirolese mothers tell their children. (according to the foreward)2) The three young b [...]

    3. An interesting Tyrolese Christmas tale about an odd goblin king of bulbous nose who visits rudeness and then riches upon the three tow-headed sons of an underemployed cobbler father. Originally published by Ruth Sawyer in 1941, but Barbara Cooney re-illustrated it in 1994. For those who don't know, Ruth Sawyer was Robert McCloskey's mother in-law, so this is as close as you'll get to the magical pairing of Bobby McCloskey and Barb Cooney.The story is pretty text-heavy--probably best for kids 5-8 [...]

    4. An excellent little folk tale about poverty, hard work, cheerfulness, hospitality, and generosity. It's great fun and the illustrations are very good, as is usual for Barbara Cooney!

    5. When left alone on Christmas Eve, the three sons of a poor cobbler who is out looking for work are greeted by a visitor to their hut--a greedy and disagreeable little man who demands food, fire, and the bulk of the bed. Their good manners toward the man, which they show in spite of their anger, are rewarded in a surprising way. (let's just say it involves King Laurin of the goblins). The original 1941 publication date is reflected in the old-fashioned feel of the story. I'd never read anything q [...]
