Politically Correct Holiday Stories

I was looking for a quick funny holiday book and sadly this did not deliver. It was inventive and unique, for sure, but... not what I wanted to read at all. Thankfully it was only 99 pages or I never would have finished it!

This tiny book is a collection of short re-imagined holiday tales that have been politically corrected. The reindeer lobby for better rights, Clara won't go off with the nutcracker because "such a journey is symbolic of the violent abduction that occurs in the wedding night [she then mentions that Dorothy and Alice have never been the same]," Frosty melts due to global warming, etc.

Clever but I just wasn't having it.
