The six volumes in the Penguin Christmas Classics are not only our most beloved Christmas tales, they also have given us much of what we love about the holiday itself.

Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol revived in Victorian England such Christmas hallmarks as the Christmas tree, holiday cards, and caroling. The Yuletide yarns of Anthony Trollope, brought together in Christmas at Thompson Hall and Other Christmas Stories, popularized throughout the British Empire and around the world the trappings of Christmas in London. L. Frank Baum's The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus created the origin story for the presiding spirit of Christmas as we know it. The holiday tales of Louisa May Alcott, collected in A Merry Christmas and Other Christmas Stories, shaped the ideal of an American Christmas. Nikolai Gogol's The Night Before Christmas brought forth some of our earliest Christmas traditions as passed down through folk tales. And E. T. A. Hoffmann's The Nutcracker inspired the most famous ballet in history, one seen by millions in the twilight of every year. Beautifully designed hardcovers-with foil-stamped jackets, decorative endpapers, and nameplates for personalization-in a small trim size that makes them perfect stocking stuffers, Penguin Christmas Classics embody the spirit of giving that is at the heart of our most time-honoured stories about the holiday.

    Oh, hell no. I might try text to speech on this (that's sort of like having Google Maps read to you), but there's no way I can read this book. The text is centered. Even when you tell your Kindle to align-left, the text is centered. There's a reason sane books aren't published with centered text. Readers follow along a line of text, but at the end, their eyes go back as far left as they started. When the text they want to read doesn't start at that point, it makes many readers (including this one) Oh, hell no.

When the text they want to read doesn't start at that point, it makes many readers (including this one) abso-f**ing-lutely crazy. And you can't tell where paragraphs begin and end because a short line doesn't signal the end of one paragraph or herald the beginning of the next. A short line is just a short line and it means nothing. There are some lovely classic stories in this book: Dickens, Twain, Moore, Scott. I know I have a couple as readable Kindle books (and/or Audible books), and the ones I'm missing I'll have to find in a more readable format.

    Wow, what a beautiful little boxed set! The set includes the very best Christmas classics wrapped in a lovely red cardinal theme. Each book is filled with beautiful little illustrations which just add to the magic. Would make a great gift.
