''The Birds' Christmas Carol'' tells the story of the angelic Carol Bird, a young girl born on Christmas, who tragically falls ill when she is five years old. Wiggin pens a quote on the front free endpaper, '''Never forget that your mother was a McGrill!' / Mrs. Ruggles / Page 47 / Kate Douglas Wiggin''. Illustrated book measures 5.25'' x 7.5''.
