Mannheim Steamroller Christmas: A Night Like No Other (Book & Music CD Package)
Chip Davis
Pocket, Nov 2003, $19.95, 183 pp.
ISBN: 0743480880

The blizzard hit awfully hard, but Evan Darling enjoys the spirit and “routines” of Christmas celebration so he plans to go out and get the tree. He asks his two children, nine year old Daniel and five year old Lily to join him, but they insist it is too cold and besides only “crazy” dad enjoys the sidebars of the holiday. They just want the gifts. Even his wife Jen baking for the holiday mentions the cold and the snow.

Besides being hurt by their attitude, Evan feels his family has lost sight of the true meaning of Christmas. He tells them the tale of a ten year old lad who also lost his Yuletide way until something magical happened during another raging snowstorm. Unlike his family who only finds happiness in the gifts, this boy only found joy in music until a magical snow globe showed him the meaning of Christmas and the demeaning of Christmas greed. The child set out to save Christmas from all the avaricious people twisting the holiday for their own means..

MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER CHRISTMAS: A NIGHT LIKE NO OTHER (BOOK & MUSIC CD PACKAGE) is a fine holiday novel with delightful Christmas tunes on an accompanying CD that the entire family will enjoy. Though obviously targeting small children, the story is fun and easy to share while the music adds a magical feel to this wondrous inspirational tale so adults will enjoy it with or without the preadolescent crowd to accompany them.
