Arthur's Christmas CookiesBook - 1972
Since he has no money to buy Christmas presents for his family, a chimp decides to bake cookies with the help of his sister and friends
Arthur wants to make Christmas cookies for Mother and Father. His sister, Violet, lets him use her Bake-E-Z oven. Wilma and Norman come over to watch -- and talk, and fight and push! The dough falls on the floor, and, finally, when the cookies are done, there is something very wrong with them.
"Nothing I make is any good," cries Arthur. But with a little help from his friends, Arthur comes up with an idea for Christmas surprises for everyone!
Lillian Hoban's hilarious story, which the New York Times called "funny and childlike," and her affectionate pictures of Arthur and his friends make Arthur's Christmas Cookies a treat for children all the year round.
Arthur finds a way to enjoy his Christmas cookies even after he discovers they can't be eaten.
