First Line:"Hardy could hardly stand it."

Review: Another good book from author William G. Bentrim. The Christmas Knot features a younger Hardy Belch who appears in another of William's books. It was good to see Hardy again and if you haven't read The Adventures of Hardy Belch it doesn't matter too much if you read the Christmas Knot because there are no references to the previous book.
The illustrations are really good. They're not overly complicated so a young child can pay attention to them without getting too confused.
I really enjoyed the story and I think that young children will love it too. Not only is it an entertaining story relating to Christmas but it teaches a lesson as well.
The Christmas Knot is a nice little story that will be enjoyed by young children. It's definitely worth looking into.
