A word about this book from the seller.
This book contains no Christmas stories nor stories about Santa Claus. The subject of the stories
is diverse, but definitely not holiday themed. Presumably, the book was meant to be a holiday gift
for a child. It should be noted that some of the contents are a bit dark and graphic and may not
be suitable for impressionable children of this century. Parental guidance is suggested.
