Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Keep the children warm with laughter all winter long with this collection of four classic tales of holiday mirth including "The Little Drummer Boy," "Merry Christmas, Space Case," "Sam and Lucky Money," and "The Tomten." In "The Little Drummer Boy," a child percussionist who cannot afford to get a gift for the baby Jesus opts instead to celebrate the birth by playing a song on his drums. "Merry Christmas, Space Case" follows by detailing a young boy who eagerly awaits a Christmas visit from his friend who lives beyond the stars, and "Sam and the Lucky Money" details the plight of a boy who finds himself the holder of some truly special currency, and the kindly stranger who helps him decide how to spend it. The final tale, entitled "The Tomten," tells the story of an amiable troll who has never been seen by human eyes, and who comforts the frightened animals of a quiet country farm. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
