Synopsis


In A Chipmunk Christmas, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore have an unforgettable holiday that ends with them singing at Carnegie Hall. Throughout the story, they sing their own inimitable renditions of beloved Christmas songs. In this ultra-deluxe retelling of the tale, Alvin and the Chipmunks come to life through full-color illustrations that capture the nostalgic art style of Alvin from the 1980s that parents of young children know and love. Interactive sound prompts allow readers to listen to dialogue and unforgettable Chipmunk Christmas music, including “Jingle Bells,” “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” and, of course, “The Chipmunk Song.”

Creator Ross Bagdasarian debuted his animated music group, Alvin and the Chipmunks, in 1958. The comic books, TV series, and albums that followed in the next decade ranked the characters #1 in popularity with kids. In 1981, the holiday classic, A Chipmunk Christmas premiered and sparked a re-launch of Alvin and the Chipmunks as an Emmy-winning animated series during the 1980s and '90s that rated #1 on Saturday mornings with kids for almost a decade. Top-grossing films and Grammy-winning soundtracks released between 2008 and 2011 prove once again that Alvin and the Chipmunks is a brand with true staying power.
