The Lump of Coal

The Lump of Coal by Lemony Snicket, Brett Helquist (Illustrator)
A lump of coal that wants to be an artist, but would settle for making decorative marks on a piece of grilled meat, rolls out of a forgotten bag of charcoal one winter and takes a spin through town seeking a miracle.

...I love this book-it's very clever and very funny, yet still heartwarming with a very positive message. I thought the Lemony Snicket books were dark, and while this has a little darkness in it, it's much more optimistic then I expected....Good plot twists and great language for a kids book.
