Like a Christmas Stocking

filled with many varied items this collection has stories that I look forward to reading every year and some I had never heard before but all top class authors. Mr Harrison has a pleasant light tenor.
The only thing I disliked was not being able to easily find a specific story.

should be called Halloween Tales

Would you try another book from the authors and/or B.J. Harrison?

No


Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

No


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of B.J. Harrison?

He narrated fine


What character would you cut from A Classic Tales Christmas?

All but the ones in the last 3 stories.


Any additional comments?

This (with the exception of 3 stories and one poem) should be listed with Halloween stories. Very dark. Just because a story takes place in winter does not make it a Christmas Story.
