About Zelda and Ivy: One Christmas
Zelda and Ivy discover the spirit of Christmas, in a holiday book with heart—and humor.
Christmas is coming, and Zelda and Ivy have high hopes. Zelda longs for a fancy evening gown, and Ivy has her heart set on a Princess Mimi doll complete with ballet accessories. But when the fox sisters realize their elderly neighbor, Mrs. Brownlie, is spending Christmas alone, they have more than just their own holiday wishes to think about. Will the Christmas Elves leave something special under the tree for everyone?
With favorite characters, an endearing story line, and beautiful illustrations trimmed with merry details, award-winning author-illustrator Laura McGee Kvasnosky’s third book about the fabulous fox sisters has all the makings of an enduring Christmas classic.
