While I enjoyed his former book, 'Politically Correct Bedtime Stories', this one fell really flat for me, and I felt he was trying too hard. Couldn't get through it, was too bored.

From the Publisher
Holiday tales have long delighted and entertained us, but until now they've always been burdened with society's skewed values and mores. Stories that reinforce the stifling class system (Dickens's A Christmas Carol), legitimize the stereotype of a merry, over-weight patriarchal oppressor (Santa Claus in The Night Before Christmas), and justify the domestication and subjugation of wild animals (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer) abound in the literature and lore of this season. Now James Finn Garner has stepped in to revise and improve these familiar tales to free our social consciousness from the ghost of prejudice past. From the newly revised "Nutcracker" to "Frosty the Persun of Snow," these stories rekindle the true holiday spirit and redefine the idea of "good will to all men" to include womyn, pre-adults, and companion animals as well.

Let's All Learn a Lesson From Diminutive Timon
Although this book was written in 1995, it's lessons ring as true today as they did in the era in which it was written. The government still oppresses persuns of snow. Nutcrackers continue to sexually harass young females. This book helps us to realize that instead of looking within ourselves to find the true meaning of Christmas, we should realize that our faults are not our own; they are the work of others, we are all just they results of the conditions of our environment.

I feel like this is more uneven in quality than the other books Garner wrote in this series. If you enjoyed the others you'll probably like this, but I wouldn't read this one as my introduction to the series.
