Tony Diterlizzi: The Broken Ornament

When a beloved ornament breaks, will it ruin the holidays or save them? New York Times bestselling author and Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi offers a brand-new Christmas story that is sure to be a holiday classic.

Jack wants this to be the best Christmas ever, and he knows just how to make it happen...

More! More lights, more presents, more cookies, more treats. More. More. More! So, when Jack breaks a dusty old ornament, he's not sure why his mom is so upset. They can always get more ornaments, so what's the big deal? Turns out the ornament was an heirloom, precious for more reasons than one. And Jack has a lot to learn about the true meaning Christmas.

A fairy emerges from the shattered ornament. She has the power to make the most magical Christmasy things happen. Suddenly trees are sprouting, reindeer are flying, and snowmen are snowball fighting. All of it is so perfect, or it would be if she could fix Mom's ornament. But she can't.

So it's up to Jack to make some Christmas magic of his own.
