Critic's Review

I just received a note from my publisher about the progress that The Paper Bag Christmas is making in the marketplace. The feedback so far has been very positive (yeah!). My real hope with this book is that it will touch as many lives as possible. One reviewer sent a very kind note to the publisher this week, which I thought I'd post for those who are interested. With any luck, some of you will share these same sentiments....

The email said...."Thank you for sending a review copy of The Paper Bag Christmas. So many books are sent to our office for review that I hardly want to THANK someone for adding to my reading stack, but I am, indeed, grateful for receiving this book. It has been years since I've read a book that touched me to tears. Thank you again."

Here is a short blurb from the official review...."Kevin Milne's book, "The Paper Bag Christmas", reads like a Christmas classic -- warm, funny, sweet, inspiring, humbling, and nostalgic. The celebration of Christmas as the birth of Jesus is artfully woven into the story, pulled through like a golden thread among the heart-melting yarn. When will it be made into a movie? I can't wait to treat my family to a round of popcorn stringing while we watch it on Christmas Eve."
