The Muppet Christmas Carol by Brooke Vitale and Luke Flowers

“As a longtime fan of The Muppets and the movie, I thought Illustrator Luke Flowers did an amazing job of capturing all the charm and cheer of the original Muppet adaptation of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” The book is a great way to get into the holiday spirit no matter how many sleeps ’til Christmas!” – Grace, Public Relations

The classic holiday film “The Muppet Christmas Carol” comes to life in this illustrated storybook for kids. Narrated by The Great Gonzo as Charles Dickens, with help from his pal Rizzo the Rat, this fully illustrated children’s book retells the classic story of the beloved original film starring Michael Caine as Scrooge, Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, and Miss Piggy as Mrs. Cratchit.

Little Santa by Jon Agee

“A charming but not too cutesy story about Santa’s childhood origins. A fun addition to a holiday storytime out loud read for ages 3-5.” – Joy, Adult & Teen Services

What was Santa like as a kid? Author Jon Agee tells a marvelous tale of a young Santa who grows up with a grumbly family who hates living at the North Pole. One day, they’re all snowed in all the way up to their chimney, and it’s up to Santa to shimmy up that chimney and find some help–in the form of reindeer and elves, of course!
