12 Days of Christmas Giveaway-a-Day: Day 5 The Shepherd The Angel The Dog

Here's a Christmas story that's perfect for this time of year: The Shepherd, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog by Dave Barry.  I read this one last year and absolutely LOVED it.  It's very good.  If you've read a Dave Barry book before, you'll know he's very funny.  Well, I hadn't read one before, so this is a good one to start with I think (because I did :)

About the Book:
"In this hilarious (USA Today) national bestseller, Pulitzer Prize winning humorist Dave Barry pens one of the warmest, most delightful Christmas stories ever.

The year is 1960, and the Christmas pageant at St. John's Episcopal Church is a very big deal. Doug Barnes is a shepherd this year, which is better than being a Three King, because you get to carry a stick. There are problems, however. The girl he likes is playing Mary opposite a Joseph who is depressingly smart, athletic, and cute; the family dog is doing poorly, and they have no idea what they're going to tell Doug's little sister, Becky; and his dad's just gotten a flat tire, which means they might not even get to the pageant. But Christmas is a time of miracles. And for Doug and his family, this will be the most miraculous Christmas of all.

A Very Barry Christmas should prove a holiday favorite for years to come!" (Kirkus Reviews)"

Dave Barry is very funny! My parents had a couple of his books at one time or another. :)

Dogs that make mischief? What could be better than that? Dave Barry's sense of humor always has me laughing.
