Review: This short story is so adorable and I love that we get a small story for Christmas set in between the first and second books. It’s really sweet and simple, the girls are getting excited for the holidays and go carolling with their friend Auguste. I love that the mysteries in this were really simple and were about learning if each other’s traditions. The illustrations as the previous book included with it are just utterly stunning and perfectly capture the era. This really was such a sweet short story, I loved reading it.
