Zsir goes to bed with a tummy ache. Can Dr. McNutt come to the rescue? Can Aunt Amy and Zsir save Christmas for the other horses? This story is written for prekindergarten through third grade students. It is filled with colorful, realistic illustrations of the Christmas Eve adventure of Zsir and his horse friends.
