Review by: Forrest Schultz, Southside Book Review - October 20, 2015
Carole Marsh is a connoisseur of interesting things, so it is not surprising that she finds the city of Savannah to be very attractive:  it is well known for its many oddities.  She owns a house there and is a strong supporter of the Girl Scouts and of the Savannah College of Art and Design, and has had many SCAD students and graduates involved in the illustration and design layout of her books, and she wrote an excellent book about the Girl Scouts on the centennial of its founding in Savannah.  Now in the book under review she expresses her love for Savannah in this humorous and imaginative Savannah version of the famous poem "Twas The Night Before Christmas".  AND, speaking of Christmas, which will be here before you know it, this book would make a good Christmas present, especially for Savannahphiles.
