This book is designed for landscape mode. Even reading it on an iPad, iBooks insists it display two pages at a time. The print is so small it is hard to read.

I love this book,I also love the Garden of Abdul Gaszi. You are the best author in the world.I wish I could meet you some day. Your customer


Christmas is such a magical time. The feelings it invokes spark a childlike nostalgia that makes the season so sweet. Seeing Christmas through my children's eyes is like reading Chris's book. He has a power to bring you back to your youth. A time that was truly magical.
