Celebrate the season with favorite Disney and Disney•Pixar characters! This updated edition of the top-selling storybook collection includes new stories with popular characters from films like Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, and Tangled. This enchanting volume of 18 tales brings the magic of Christmas to life with over 250 beautiful full-page and spot illustrations plus silver-gilded pages!

Disney fans of all ages will enjoy this collection of classic Disney stories. From Tangled, to Frozen, Bambi, Dumbo, Robin Hood, 101 Dalmatians, the classic Mickey's Christmas Carol, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, Wreck Ralph and many more, this collection of short stories features many of our favorite characters celebrating the Christmas holiday. 

The short stories are great. Each story is perfect for reading before bedtime. With roughly twenty stories in the book, there are plenty of stories to read through out the month of December, leading up to Christmas. I like young fans will love discovering how their favorite characters celebrate Christmas and the holiday season. 

One of the things we loved about the book, is that the illustrations stay true to the Disney characters. Bambi for example, is illustrated the same way movie Bambi is. I like that the illustrations are true to the Disney characters I grew up with, and the more modern day movies my children love. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
