 About the Book 

Maxine used to hate the holidays, from the stinging needles of sleet on her face to the ulcer-inducing holiday shoppers at the malls. Then she learned a very valuable lesson: A well-aimed slushball can take out an entire group of carolers. WhileMoreMaxine used to hate the holidays, from the stinging needles of sleet on her face to the ulcer-inducing holiday shoppers at the malls. Then she learned a very valuable lesson: A well-aimed slushball can take out an entire group of carolers. While basking in the glow of this revelation, Maxine realized she had many other sneering seasonal snippets to share. So she crammed them between the covers of this book. In this Christmas book, Maxine waxes nostalgic about her hopes and dreams for the season: I like to give gag gifts at the holidays. My cooking. It gags everybody. Aah, Christmas. The time when carefully wrapped packages are ripped apart in about two seconds flat. This year Im making gingerbread men modeled after my relatives. Half-baked.I had a reindeer try to run me over once. In fact, I still have part of him in the freezer. Illustrated throughout in glorious color, Seasons Gripings from Maxine will make the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer for that special someone who sees the funny sides of the season. From selecting trees to watching holiday parades, from musings about gift buying to visits from Santa, Maxine offers her resounding opinions about the holidays in a way thats made her a worldwide favorite.
