Christmas is a busy time in Mud Flat. Everyone is bustling about making plans, wrapping gifts, and deciding who will play Santa at the village holiday party. But the Mud Flat residents still find time to enjoy the magic of the season. Strange and wonderful things happen at this time of year, like finding raisin cookies in the snow, chasing runaway rolls of red ribbon, and sharing the spirit of giving -- Mud Flat style!

James Stevenson is a prolific author of picture books, poetry, and young adult novels. His work is read and loved by readers of all ages.From Booklist:
Gr. 1-3, younger for reading aloud. It's the week before Christmas, and everyone in Mud Flat is scrambling to get ready. Even complacent Sherwood, who is certain that he's completely ready for the holiday, must make an emergency adjustment when the ribbon he bought rolls away. The charm of Mud Flat rests in its blend of the quirky (the village's tiniest member ends up playing Santa) and the winsomely mundane. Of course, Stevenson heightens the story with droll humor and freewheeling watercolor and pen-and-ink drawings, in which each stroke of the pen adds another twinkle of character. As with the other Mud Flat books, this one will work as a read-aloud as well as for new readers. Susan Dove Lempke
