Morris's Disappearing Bag A Christmas Story by: Rosemary Wells
One of the funniest Christmas stories that is a favorite in this house is Morris's Disappearing Bag. By the author of Max & Ruby this book is a funny look at how siblings get along and share their gifts on Christmas.
Morris is the youngest and none of his older three siblings want to share their presents with him and they aren't in the least bit interested in his teddy bear he got. So while they use each others gifts Max becomes more and more depressed. He sits under the tree while his family is eating and he sees one last gift left unopened. It was a disappearing bag and in he went. His siblings start searching for him and when he reappears they can't wait to try the bag out. So Morris opens the bag and in they disappeared while Morris gets to use all of their gifts without anyone else around!
"Bedtime.!" said Morris. "May I use the bag tomorrow?" asked Rose "I want to sleep in it tonight," said Betty. "Morris," said Victor, "I hope you remember where you put the bag." But Morris was already fast asleep. Now don't we all wish we had a bag like that for holidays and birthdays? Imagine using your brothers or sisters gifts while they disappeared!
Here is to a Merry Christmas in this wonderful season of giving and sharing!
