Published near the end of 1942, this issue features some of Walt Kelly's earliest work for Dell Comics. He illustrates a tale by Hans Christian Andersen, The Fir Tree (also published with some changes as a W T Grant Co giveaway comic the same year), and a poem by Stella Mead, Lord Octopus Went to the Christmas Fair. Other artists contributing to this issue include L Bing (Santa Claus in Trouble), Arthur E Jameson (The First Christmas Tree), and Robert A Graefa (Santa Claus and the Mouse).
