Comments: “Jingles Jangled!” Jingles joins in a school dance. He does have fun using his magic to fit in. He is mischievous yet in a fun-loving way. Still, it is not nice to trick people and Archie finds a way to turn the tables on Jingles in a way that is fitting. The art is gloriously done in the traditional style.
“Blast from the Past” is a weird story that goes nowhere. Pop does look and act nice throughout the story.
“That Elf is Shelved!” Jingles come down to keep an eye on Archie. jingles does have a way of causing trouble even if he is trying to do the right thing. Archie with the way he gets into trouble does not need a magical elf to help him get into more.
“‘Tis the Season to be Freezin’!” Here we get to watch Veronica goes crazy building an igloo well her overseeing its construction. She does go all out.
“You’re Baking Me Crazy!!” Veronica is feeling a little jealous and she does put in the work to achieve her goal only things, unfortunately, do not work out as a little surprise occurs. At least she did try.
This is a wonderful collection of holiday stories that are sure to get you in the mood for Christmas.
