Publisher's Weekly

George McCray, the 12-year-old hero of this amicable holiday story, is wrestling with a lot: his father's died, his mother's left him with his grandparents on their dairy farm (where he's expected to pull more than his share of work), and he's reluctantly "inherited" a dog, Tucker, from the alcoholic next door. After a rocky start, Tucker soon becomes George's best friend and gives him the strength to take on his challenges and move into adulthood. Cute, hopeful, and residing on the safe side of saccharine, this heartwarming if unoriginal tale should appeal especially to younger readers. (Nov.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

"With Christmas With Tucker, Greg Kincaid has written a solid, earnest holiday tale about hard work, family and the importance of a good dog." –Washington Post

"In this prequel to A Dog Named Christmas, Kincaid spins an immensely satisfying coming-of-age tale about how 12-year-old George McCray, mourning his father’s recent death from a tractor accident, finds solace in befriending a neglected Irish setter named Tucker…Although I am well aware that Christmas titles flood bookstores each December 1, I also know that Christmas with Tucker, along with the author’s earlier novel, should rise above the literary tinsel and glitz to become a holiday classic. "
Best Friends

"This simple but strong story celebrates the beauty of everyday things, the power of love and humility, the singular grace that is a good dog, and the mysterious ability of that grace to transform the human heart. A perfect Christmas read." – Dean Koontz

"I don’t own a dog – but after reading this book, I have an irresistible urge to go out and get one. Christmas with Tucker is simply that poignant and lovely." – A. J. Jacobs
 
"It was the bleakest of Christmas seasons that year: blizzards followed by ice paralyzed the entire county. No one would have blamed the thirteen-year-old boy for taking the easy way out, or expected the aged grandfather to single-handedly pull off a miracle. Stirred into author Greg Kincaid's wondrous crucible are an empathetic grandmother, a sorrowing mother, a shy earliteen girl, a sodden alcoholic neighbor–oh yes, and an Irish setter named Tucker, with a heart filled with love for all of them. Taken all together: a Christmas story for the ages!" – Joseph Wheeler, Editor/Compiler of the bestselling Christmas in My Heart story anthologies

    This review was written for Christmas with Tucker.
    I always enjoy reading books about Christmas at this time of year but without a doubt this one was by far more than I expected.. After reading "A Dog Named Christmas" last year I knew I had to have "Christmas With Tucker" Greg Kincaid writes with warmth and feeling and brings out the best in man/dog relationship. Will be looking for more of his writing!

    I ordered the book because of the dog's name. My grandson plays with a dog named Tucker. He has had a rough year with divorcing parents. I think the book will be uplifting to him and his mother.

    This review was written for Christmas with Tucker.
    This is a simple but elegant story that grips you from the get-go. George, an ordinary young teenager, dealing with extraordinary life events will endear himself to you as you read his story.

    A dog, Irish setter Tucker, along with his grandparents and the family farm, aids George's journey of surviving and growing up on a farm in the 1960s.

    When I finished reading Christmas with Tucker, I had a warm glow of contentment and a sense of satisfaction that the world was a better place. Then I began to make a list of friends and relatives who appreciate the finer things in life and with Christmas just around the corner, needing a gift. This is also a perfect choice for families that enjoy reading aloud together.
