From Our Editors

Only someone as considerate as Arthur the Aardvark would think about getting Santa a Christmas gift. The thing about Arthur is that he is so thoughtful that he starts to fret when December 25th starts drawing near. Time ticks, egging the friendly aardvark onwards to an adventure through his world in search of the perfect gift for his favourite holiday hero. Arthur's Christmasis a warm-hearted romp through the snowy holiday world of Arthur as he searches desperately for both a present and the sister he lost trying to find it.
