Billy and Monster's Golden Christmas serves as a heartwarming reminder to be thankful everyday for the true gifts in our lives.
Like most kids, Billy is anxious for Christmas. He's excited for delicious food, spending time with family from near and far, and most of all presents. However, when Uncle Leland gives Billy an ordinary gold pen, Billy is more than disappointed. Now, Uncle Leland is hurt and dad is upset with Billy for being ungrateful. Before dad can address Billy's behavior, grandpa suggests a game of hide-and-seek and Billy has to count. But, this seemingly innocent game of hide-and-seek catapults Billy into an unusual world with colorful monsters who are thankful just to have one another. Will Billy learn something from his new friends?
We've all gotten a gift that we were less than thrilled with and many times we let the disappointment show (even if we don't mean to). It's at these times that we forget, it really is the thought that counts. Billy's ordeal is a wonderful reminder of this and the story's message is related in an entertaining and simple manner, allowing children to easily grasp the lesson. The illustrations are engaging and vivid, adding to this delightful tale.
