The Buzz About the Book
“I loved reading about Lionel and his adventure. And I love a good Christmas story. I got both in this one amazing book! ” ~ Susan S., Amazon
“Lionel’s Christmas Adventure is a classic, reminds me of Charlie Brown in fact it would be super cute as a cartoon for kids during the holidays. Must Read!” ~ Lovely Reader, Amazon
“A great story for children with a sprinkling of magic… A book that will encourage children to think about what is really valuable in life. ~ Diane, Amazon
“The story is a great read, not just for the holiday, but all year as well.” ~ Mysunshine510, Amazon
“Lionel’s character and thoughts are perfect for teaching younger ones the true spirit of the holidays, and ways that we as community members can give back to others and it doesn’t cost us anything but some time and kindness. Join Lionel in spreading some Christmas cheer!” ~ Charlie A., Amazon
And two years ago I said:
“I love the way Paul Hewlett takes us along with Lionel through all his painful and embarrassing misdemeanours. They are just so true. Behind that facade we give ourselves, we’ve been there. And in Lionel’s Christmas Adventure, he discovers the true meaning of Christmas. And I find myself strangely reconciled to all the commercialism and greed and overeating, because it isn’t about that at all, and that’s what Lionel discovers. Then he has a happy Christmas.
A lovely read, at about 40 or so pages, for anyone who wants to settle down with an antidote to the schmaltz and enjoy an evening of simple pleasures, and an adventure with a boy whom we once knew very well.” Read the rest of my review here!
