This is a collection of short stories written especially to brighten up each reader's Christmas. Like all things Christmassy, everything is possible in this dream world.
Immerse yourself in Mikdadi's Christmas fantasy where everything ends with a smile on every single character's face. Christmas brings people together. Miracle of miracles, it even causes family members to like each other. That is the true spirit of Christmas.
Mikdadi reflects the joy of Christmas so evocatively and so beautifully. These short stories, which were written to be read to the author's children on Christmas Eve, will reverberate in the reader's mind for a long time after the book has been put down.
Mikdadi's children now have children of their own. These, and many new stories, will be their future Christmas fare.

Such a pleasure to be reading Faysal Mikdadi's moving collection of Christmas Short Stories which vivify with simple and touching beauty the core of an inner world most familiar to us all though captured with such sensitivity and grace. For an ideal gift this Christmas look no further.
To enter into the imagination behind this wonderfull collection of festive short stories is to be drawn back to a childhood where certainly father Christtmas, with his wide and friendly girth, managed to sqeeze down the tightest gap blackly pollinated with ash to deliver joy in his white and crimson splender; and more importantly deliver the truth and light of which, only too soon, becomes Christmas past as too our dreams. So one and all read, drink in, and, be dicidedly merry with this erudite jem. Merry Christmmmas!!!
Return was a superb experience. I have re-read it several times over the last five or so years. I am so pleased that Mikdadi has now written this collection of evocative, funny, innocent and touching short stories. Perfect for Christmas. I strongly recommend it to everyone.
This is such a wonderful and touching work. Each story brings out the best and warmest feelings about Christmas. Reading these stories will fill your heart with happiness, and occasionally, your eyes with warm tears of contentment. Well worth reading and re-reading on a dark snowy Christmas Eve.
