Classic Christmas Stories

A charming compilation of Christmas stories by such greats as Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Andersen (who wrote the original “The Little Mermaid”), L. Frank Baum (author of The Wizard of Oz), Harriet Beecher Stowe, Robert Louis Stevenson, and many more. In addition to Christmas stories and poetry, this book also includes non-fiction books written about Christmas from several different angles. While some of these stories may be appropriate for children, many – if not most – are meant for adults.
