It's Christmas Eve and Barbie and her little sister Kelly are getting all dolled up for a glamorous charity ball. There's only one problem: Kelly doesn't want to go. She'd rather stay home and open her presents. So Barbie tells Kelly a story to teach her about the true spirit of Christmas. The story takes place in Victorian England and stars the diva Eden Starling. Eden is the most glamorous singer in London-and she knows it. She rules the Gadshill Theatre, along with her snooty cat, Chuzzlewit, who might be an even bigger diva than his owner! Eden hates Christmas. Eden thinks Christmas distracts everyone from what's really important-working for her! She declares that there will be no Christmas carols to be sung, no parties to be had, and no merriment to be made at the Gadshill Theater. She even wants to make them all come in to work on Christmas Day! That night, after Eden is snug in her bed, a ghost visits her. The ghost pleads with Eden to change her ways, and promises to send three more spirits to teach her the error of her ways. But will the spirits be able to convince this selfish star the true meaning of Christmas before it's too late?
Whoop it up with SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends in this book of side-splitting sillies. It's sure to buoy even the briniest blowhards!
