The Christmas Humbugs by Colleen Monroe, Illustrated by Michael Glen Monroe
“They come in full of mischief
to play naughty little games,
like ripping holes in stockings
and breaking candy canes.
They aren’t trying to be nasty,
in fact the opposite is true,
they’re testing Christmas Spirit
and how strong it is in you.”
– The Christmas Humbugs
This is a great Christmas book to read. Even though I never read picture books anymore, I love reading this book and many others during Christmas time. The illustrations in this book are fabulous, they are colorful and fun to look at. There is so much going on, every time you read it there is something new to see. The writing is done in poem form to keep the reader interested. Sometimes I just like looking at the pictures and seeing what I can see. So hopefully you will try to find this book because I am sure that it will be loved by one and all.

This is such a cute book with the illustrations. In this story a girl named Sophie was curious where the elevator went and she found out that it went to where Santa lived. This book was about learning the true meaning of Christmas. The illustrations are wonderful and it is a lovely read. I have been reading this book for about 5-6 years now and I still love reading it.
Christmas is such a wonderful time to pull out picture books. They almost put you in the best mood of the season as much as hot chocolate and cookies.
