"I really like this book and this author. She genuinely understands what matters to young children, and writes with warmth, humor, and more suspense than you might expect in a Christmas story. As an adult reader, by the time I was one third through the book, I couldn't put it down. ...If you want stories to stir the hearts of the young people in your life, the Rosco the Rascal series is a lovable choice. This book, though seasonal, is my favorite so far." Larry Feign, author

"...These books are stand-alone adventures, but readers are likely to be hooked on the series after reading any one of them." Barbara Ann Mojica, children's author and Top Contributor, Amazon Children's Books Reviews
