Ho-Ho-NOOO! by Bill Myers

Now that I have read all of the books in this series, I can state unequivocally that this one is my favorite!  All these books offer funny dialogue, silly blunders from Tuna and Herby, catastrophes in TJ’s life, and futuristic devices that never seem to work properly.  In the midst of all the chaos, Myers offers a mini-character lesson.  In this book, as you can imagine, the lesson is the true meaning of Christmas.  Is Christmas about buying a better present than someone else, or can it simply be spending time with the people who matter most?  Myers further complicates things in this book by a real-life challenge of unemployment.

I love the way Myers teaches a lesson in a fun, kid-friendly way.  These books are great for kids or kids-at-heart.  The whole set would be a great gift for beginning or intermediate chapter readers.
