Start your own holiday tradition inspired by this bestselling Yuletide story. Based on a real Icelandic tradition where people gift books to their family and friends on Christmas Eve, The Christmas Book Flood brings all the sparkle and anticipation of the winter season―and of the joys of reading―to the page.

As northern lights dance and snow blankets the ground, a young girl searches for the perfect book to give her loved ones for their annual book exchange on Christmas Eve. When December 24th finally arrives, they gather together to share magical stories, curl up by the fire, and read all night long--so the Book Flood begins!

With gorgeous artwork, a lyrical text, and a diverse cast of characters, Emily Kilgore and Kitty Moss's heartwarming picture book is a surefire holiday classic best enjoyed with a mug of hot cocoa.

Includes an author's note explaining the book's inspiration and the historical origins of the Icelandic tradition.
