    this was a nice little holiday book about a piece of coal in a tuxedo.

  • Amanda

    The Lump of Coal is not your typical holiday story This ingenious tale is about a lump of coal, one with a flare for art and the desire to prepare authentic Korean barbecue, who dreams of a holiday miracle The illustrations of the lump of coal are especially charming.

  • Melki

    Ordinarily the cheery message of Miracles can happen if you keep on believing would be enough to set my teeth on edgeHOWEVERwhen that message is woven into the tale of a sullen lump of coal who wants to be an artist AND is told by none other than

    Lemony Snicket rules and all but mostly I like the crotchety little lump stomping around in his little tuxedo, glaring at everybody Glare glare glare.

    2008 December 29This is going to be a perennial holiday read, I think And every time I read it, I love it 2009 December 19 2012 December 17It does get better, every year Favorite line The story begins with a lump of coal, who for the sake of argument, could think, talk, and move itself around Like many people who dress in black, the lump of coal was interested in becoming an artist Really, I wish Snicket were devoting his time to writing short stories 2014 December 11Natasha r
