A Book of Christmas by Tasha Tudor in Japanese, which is a double treat. Mr. Pudgins used to be a highly desirable book but it doesn't look as though it goes for much lately so I'm going to keep this copy for myself (I still sell books from time to time on Amazon if I find something really good). Mr. Pudgins is an elderly man who arrives to babysit three children and magical things happen--soda pop comes out of the faucets and he invites their shadows to come and play. The last book is a Dick and Jane reader from 1965 when the illustrations were changed to include Hispanic, Asian and African-American children.

There is also a pop-up Advent Calendar--another one for my collection!
