The 8th Day of the 12 Books of the Holiday Season...guest blog by author Sherry Ellis
My favorite holiday book is a newer one, written by my friend, Dennis Higgins. It's called Christmas Returns to Pottersville. We all know the story, It's a Wonderful Life. Christmas Returns to Pottersville is the story of Peter Potter, a descendant of the original Mr. Potter. He's the Scrooge who owns Pottersville. Corruption and discontent are rampant in this miserable little town. After attempting to take his life, Mr. Potter is shown what the place would've been like had he not been born to wreck it. It's a real eye-opener that inspires Mr. Potter to change his ways and create a wonderful life.
I love this story because it's an imaginative combination of two other beloved Christmas tales: It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol. It's a well-written, quick read that offers hope that kindness and love can make the world a better place. A lovely Christmas story recommended for all ages!

You can't dig a hole to China!
Squirt doesn't believe Bubba can dig a hole to China. But when the hole swallows them, the kids find themselves in Xi'an, China, surrounded by Terracotta Warriors.
It gets worse when the ghost of the first emperor of China appears. He tells them they can't go home until they find his missing pi. The kids don't know where to begin until they meet a girl and her grandmother who promise to help find the pendant.
Soon they realize they are being followed. And they are no closer to finding the missing pi. Will Bubba and Squirt ever make it back home?
