"I think," said Nicey, "that Christmas is the most magic time of all the year, not just for the pretty things you get, but for the feeling inside you of what a good place the world is to live in. I should know, for I have seen one hundred and ten Christmases!" Nicey Melinda and Sethany Ann are two very old, but very well loved dolls. This time of year, the dolls are busy planning their yearly Christmas dinner party-with a little help from the two little girls they live with. The girls bundle Nicey and Sethany up to go to the woods for their Christmas tree. After they all decorate the tree with silver nutmegs and golden pears, there is much baking to be done for the party. Oh what a lovely Christmas they will have! Tasha Tudor's delightfully nostalgic story conveys the charm of holiday traditions. With Davina Porter's warm narration, you will experience all the magic of an old fashioned Christmas.

Professional reviews

"Containing two lucky dolls and two happy owners, this book highlights the sweet simplicity of little girls. As an added bonus, this tape contains a private note from the author describing her experience with dolls. Each Christmas, the dolls host a special dinner party, inviting friends (and, of course, their owners). After the opening of lavish presents, a marionette show tops off the evening. Porter reads in an emphatic, dramatic tone, her British voice befitting the posh setting. Her even pace is marred by the occasional whistling of an "s" or two. A.G.H.
