A warm, witty trip back to forgotten America! Christmas 1959, when only the strongest kids survived… It’s Christmas1959, and ten year-old Trudy McFarlan has a lot on her plate; scrutinizing the Sears Catalog for gyp-free toys, riding roughshod over her troglodyte siblings, skirmishes with a diabolical teacher, battles with an orangutan babysitter and appeasing her best friend by pulling the prank of the century. And she has to do it all without incurring the dreaded consequence—grounded for the holidays! Cigarette-smoking toys, radioactive chemistry sets, sledding wars, Santa pins and holiday corsages—this is the Christmas of 1959. And this is where childhood still lives! “An exceptionally clever and entertaining read anytime of the year, 'My Childhood Christmas' is a timeless novel that showcases author Rootie Simms flair for deftly crafted stories that engage the reader's attention from beginning to end. Very highly recommended…” –Midwest Book Review
