They search the streets for the door that fits this key and meet other interesting characters and surprises along the way. Fair's Fair is a creepy and adventurous read.

    3. Fair's Fair follows the story of a poor boy named Jackson around Christmas time, and how a stray dog helps him find the family that he always longed for. The story has a bleak, cold feel to it that only adds to the wintery, Christmassy atmosphere, and the narrative itself is full of character. This one is, and will remain to be, a Christmas classic in my household.
