From the dust jacket: “Why is there a great big tree in the house?!? And why are all these boxes underneath it? Hey—what is that?!? Where did it come from? Uh oh. This isn’t good. … This isn’t good at all!
“In this hilarious follow-up to the New York Times bestselling picture book Charlie the Ranch Dog, Ree Drummond—the Pioneer Woman herself—delivers a story about getting into the holiday spirit and finding the good in all. Even though Charlie may not have put a kitty on his Christmas list, he learns that if you keep an open heart, new friends can come in unexpected packages.”
What a cute holiday story! Boy, is Charlie the basset hound surprised when he finds a kitten under the tree on Christmas morning! He’s so funny when he tries to ignore the kitten at first and then when he tries to scare him off with a big bark/howl. And then, poor guy, is surprised at the very end by another youngster! A very sweet and heartwarming story to read to your kittens during this season of cheer!
Rating 4 out of 5 paws for the sweet story and adorable illustrations.
