Boomer nostalgia, sweet and funny, and oh, so true to life. Short and simple enough to be read out loud to others. Perfectly chosen photographs, ads, and Christmas cards from the time inserted throughout the narrative.
This is an amusing, kids-friendly story. It is good for adults as well (but no children's ears need to be covered). Dave Barry's humor is funny and it's an amusing story. It's a nice car trip filler.
This a classic for Christmas.Great gift. This a family story in 1960. A church puts on the Christmas story. The director expects perfection from children and pets. We know that is impossible, if we have children. The shepherds beat each other with their staffs. A dog walks in on the play and one family almost does not make the play due to a flat tire.But Christmas is a time of miracles, and this Christmas turns out to be a miracle for Doug, the main character and his family. This is a fun story for an adult or for a family. It is a comedy of errors. A great Christmas story. Great gift.
This was the most heartwarmingly funny CD I have listened to. I find his comedy refreshing and honest.
LOVE, LOVE,LOVE this book! Classic Dave Barry-you can't help but laugh out loud throughout the book. I make it a point to read this every Christmas. A great story to read to older kids
