Merry Kissmus, Lincoln! is the second book in the “Lincoln McCarthy” series featuring a laberdoodle lawyer who helps solve problems for friends, clients and children. Lincoln’s niece, Autumn, loves “Kissmus” and when Lincoln asks her to tell him about the birth of Jesus, Autumn’s version sends Lincoln reeling. Autumn thinks the shepherds found out about Jesus’ birth via WiFi and took Ubers to Bethlehem while the angels (God’s “paper towels”) clean up messes people make on Earth. Lincoln finally hauls Autumn onto his lap and reads to her from the Book of Luke setting her straight about the Christ child’s birth. This story demonstrates how little children make sense of new information while broadening their vocabularies with limited background knowledge which can sometimes lead to misconceptions. Children and adults will both be enlightened by this fun Christmas story.

“Merry Kissmus, Lincoln! is a pleasure. The characters in E.B. Fletcher’s story bring the excitement of a child, and the wisdom of the years, into a mix that enables us to experience the joy of Christmas. Fletcher connects the world of Ubers and Cheese-etts with Luke’s account of the birth of Christ in a way that will bless and benefit readers of all ages.” — Reverend William Gipe, Presbyterian Minister; Charlotte, NC.
“What a fun way to build curiosity and wonder into a child’s life who really wants to know the authentic Christmas Story. A pleasurable read for adults, too.”— Dr. Allen Kemp, retired Presbyterian Pastor and international leadership trainer; Hampton, VA.
