The Christmas Mink and Other December Tales from the North Woods brings the spirit of the season alive. In this whimsical collection of Christmas stories and poems from the snowy north woods of New England, see the season in a new light and find the holiday spirit in unlikely places—in Siberia, from the tail of the Christmas Comet, or even a tree in your own yard. In the title tale, ""The Christmas Mink,"" young Will, worried about finding a gift for his generous mother, receives a miraculous gift courtesy of a talking mink. In ""Coal,"" hapless elves must travel to Siberia to gather Santa’s supply of coal for his list of VBKs (very bad kids). Join curmudgeonly old woodsmen, living ornaments, a congress of talking animals, a horde of helpful mice, and one grandiose moose in these rousing December tales certain to please both cynic and celebrant alike.
