Christmas is the perfect time to gather around and read all those wonderful holiday stories that we love. Whether you are into stories about Santa, magic, families, or general goodwill to mankind, Mistletoe Madness has what youre looking for.

Learn what happens when a 12-year-old cooks her first Christmas turkey, how one family celebrates Christmas two ways, and what happens when a girl rides catches the train for a very special Christmas present. This is just a small peek into the treasures that are in this anthology. Filled with stories, poems, and occasional illustrations this book has something for everyone.

And not all of these stories take place in modern times or under unusual circumstances. Set in both past and present, these stories are full of magic, both real and imagined. My favorite story, Liranels Gift was set in Medieval times, in a town where blessings are bestowed by Song (magic through singing). Although that one was by far my favorite, I would have to say The Clauses go to Hollywood was a close tie. After all, who wouldnt want to see Santa Claus as a real movie star?

Recommended for ages 12 and up, although readers of all ages will enjoy reading (or hearing) this wonderful collection.
