Kosmo's Christmas Delivery by Deb Kalmbach



Kosmo, the king of troublesome terriers, takes trouble to a whole new level! He's a one-of-a-kind, corn-on-the-cob nibbling, ice cream licking, always-into-mischief dog. Kosmo's Christmas Delivery is told from the point-of-view of an older, but not necessarily wiser dog, Kramer, who laments the acquisition of Kosmo by his family, especially his girl, Emily Jean. When the inquisitive Kosmo jumps on board the Yellow Package delivery truck a few days before Christmas, Kramer, secretly wishes the pup will be lost forever. He reluctantly agrees to help Emily Jean search the snowy streets of their small town for Kosmo. Through a series of unusual events, the missing terrier finally comes home, but not a moment before his older sibling realizes how much he cares about his young friend.

About The Author







Deb is the author of Because I Said Forever: Embracing Hope in a Not-So-Perfect Marriage (co-authored with Heather Kopp) and the author of a book for children, Corey’s Dad Drinks Too Much. She has been a contributor to many books, including The New Women’s Devotional Bible and Pearl Girls: Encountering Grit, Experiencing Grace. She has written for Focus on the Family, Christian Parenting Today, and many other publications.
Deb married Randy Kalmbach at 19. They thought all they needed was love—and the possessions they could fit in their metallic blue VW bug! What they didn’t realize was how much it would take to live with adversity, disappointment and heartache. They never imagined their journey taking them into the depths of addiction with Randy battling alcoholism for almost 30 years before he experienced the miracle of sobriety.
Deb isn’t just theorizing when she gives hope and practical solutions to those who struggle with difficult relationships. Her own brokenness has given her great compassion and insight for others who are hurting. With her vibrant and engaging manner, she speaks profoundly about God’s faithfulness and how to embrace a God-honoring life in the midst of almost unbearable circumstances. Deb and Randy are grateful beyond words for their 45 years of “not-so-perfect” marriage.
They make their home in rural Washington State with Kosmo, their lively Jack Russell Terrier. They have two amazing sons, a lovely daughter-in-law, and a sweet 3- year old granddaughter.


My Review

As soon as I received this darling book I read it to my two grandsons, and we all oohed and awed at the drawings, and we all loved the pictures of Kozmo’s tail.
What a perfect Christmas adventure for a dog, wonder if he learned anything about what happened to him. My boys loved that he is a terrier, we have two Rat Terriers and my sister two Jack Russell’s, and their curiosity seems to get them in trouble.
Is there a lesson here? Yes, and what a great learning tool for the boys, what if one of them weren’t here, the other would definitely miss the other. Poor Kramer they said as each petted one of our dogs, and stated that they thought they knew how he was feeling.
They did learn that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence, and that a scary person isn’t always scary.
A really sweet read to share with someone or ones special
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
