For the first time together, books 1, 2 and 3 of Flea's Five Christmases, all for one low price!<br /><br />The North Pole Challenge - Book 1<br />Amazon Reviewer: "This is a wonderful read. The characters are amazing, and life like that seem to jump off the page at you. There are a lot of plot twists that will keep the reader glued to the page. I love how descriptive George is when he's describing the North Pole, and all the fun it has, with an element of danger. If you get this book for yourself, or you kids, I can promise that you/they won't be sorry. I know I wasn't and I can't wait to start the second book in the series."<br /><br />The Rudolph Challenge - Book 2<br />Amazon Reviewer: "Flea returns for his second Christmas at the North Pole and new challenges are facing him. Kevin George's unique take on the Christmas tradition of Santa Claus and the North Pole offer a fast paced, action filled adventure like none other. The Rudolph Challenge builds on the story introduced in the North Pole Challenge and actually surpasses it in quality."<br /><br />The Jack Frost Challenge - Book 3<br />Amazon Reviewer: "Love this series! This third book was definitely more action packed and we learn more about Flea's origins."

<p>Laughs abound in this bestselling Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson! <em>The Best Christmas Pageant Ever</em> follows the outrageous shenanigans of the Herdman siblings, or “the worst kids in the history of the world.” The siblings take over the annual Christmas pageant in a hilarious yet heartwarming tale involving the Three Wise Men, a ham, scared shepherds, and six rowdy kids. </p><p>Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie, and Gladys Herdman are an awful bunch. They set fire to Fred Shoemaker’s toolshed, blackmailed Wanda Pierce to get her charm bracelet, and smacked Alice Wendelken across the head. And that’s just the start! When the Herdmans show up at church for the free snacks and suddenly take over the Christmas pageant, the other kids are shocked. It’s obvious that they’re up to no good. But Christmas magic is all around and the Herdmans, who have never heard the Christmas story before, start to reimagine it in their own way.</p><p>This year’s pageant is definitely like no other, but maybe that’s exactly what makes it so special.</p>
