Super cute Christmas book!

I have the other Violet books and they really keep getting better. The animations in this one are even more exciting than the last book. The snowfall outside is a particularly cool touch. The story is a classic and they don't change it, though the illustrations make it new and interesting. So nice to have a fresh take on this story rather than just the expected versions that I am sure will be out soon.

Good but pricey

Book is cute and story is timeless classic with a couple of changes for Violet. The interactive part is very simple. The reason I only give it 3 stars is because the graphic is all messed up on the page where Santa goes back up the chimney. We can see a glimpse of the entire picture only as we go forward. No fireplace, no Santa, no stockings. Just yellow outlines and boots. Small kids were disappointed.

The Holiday Season is Here!

A wonderful take on the poem Twas The Night Before Christmas. What I like about this story is the original illustrations and atmosphere. I've never seen anything like it and i LOVE it! :)
