ABOUT 'BUNKY AND THE WALMS:
THE CHRISTMAS STORY'...
As warm and fulfilling as gingerbread and cupcakes, muffins and cookies and lollipops on Christmas Eve, Bunky and the Walms is a book about the joys of reading, writing, holidays and striving to be a better person. Exploring the balance between childhood dreams and adult responsibilities, the chaos of the creative life and the orderly routines of domestic society, Bunky and the Walms comes out firmly on the side of goodness and finding delight and magic in the dreams and happiness of others. Bunky and the Walms is not just a magical Christmas story but a guide for how to live a good life, an adventurous life, a Bunky life, as we all struggle through life’s challenges to become the heroes of our own stories.
In Bunky and the Walms, Aleksandra Tryniecka invites readers, regardless
of age, to enjoy reading an interesting Christmas event in the life of the restless
yet adventurous little Bunky, who, guided by senile Santa Claus, roams
the world distributing gifts and learning lessons about Christmas values.
Interweaving other interesting narrative threads into the fabric of the fable,
Tryniecka skillfully creates out of Walmland a setting for her story, where
fairy-tale elements embrace reality.

This is a true Christmas Story! Those who do not believe in the story should read it twice. The second time loud, so their ears can hear it and with their eyes open, so they can see it. It is only then that they would realize that this is an amazing true story. I really enjoy it, especially the story with Santa Claus.
