This is an American holiday classic I read every Christmas, and one my husband enjoyed it so much he recommended it to his friends. It's a little story with big heart and completely unlike most of Capote's works. This special edition includes an audio CD narrated by Academy Award winning Celeste Holm.

Chilling, haunting, and hopeful, this book will resonate with readers long after they’ve closed the cover.

This book does follow the alphabet's progressive order but in a unique, clever, and humorous fashion, most logical to a child. Kalman's distinctive illustrations of objects hand-selected from the Cooper Hewitt Museum are the cherry on top of this artistic, alphabetical oddity.
