The Lump of Coal


I have many favorite holiday books and here is one of my favorites.  I ran into this little treasure a few years back.  I am a great fan of Lemony Snicket’s sarcastic dark humor.  This book that is illustrated by Brett Helquist is about none other than a lump of coal.  Great humor, but also a great moral and ending.
