Publisher's Summary

A joyful middle-grade novel based on the Netflix holiday film Jingle Jangle: A Chistmas Journey, starring Phylicia Rashad, Forrest Whitaker, Anika Noni Rose, Keegan Michael Key, and newcomer Madalen Mills, about an eccentric toymaker, his adventurous granddaughter, and a magical invention, that if they can get it to work in time for the holidays, could change their lives forever.

A delightful middle-grade story based on the Netflix holiday film Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey! A holiday tale set in the snow-covered town of Cobbleton, Jingle Jangle follows eccentric toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker) whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when a betrayal by a former protégé (Keegan-Michael Key) leaves Jeronicus withdrawn and down on his luck, it's up to his bright and adventurous granddaughter, Journey (newcomer Madalen Mills) - and a singularly magical invention - to save the day. 

From the imagination of writer/director David E. Talbert and producer Lyn Sisson-Talbert, featuring original music by John Legend, Philip Lawrence, Davy Nathan, and Michael Diskint. Jingle Jangle reminds you that anything is possible...if you believe.

Deserves more than 5 stars

I am a 35 year old male, and this young novel of the film was just as magical as the movie if not more. Phylicia Rashad’s narration wraps you in the warmest hug. I will listen to this every year.

Three hours well spent with a wonderful Christmas narrator

Phylicia Rashad gives a wonderful performance in this reading. Warm fuzzy Christmas magic just sparkles into the listener’s ears, particularly during the first hour. Her modulation is so alive in every sentence and character rendition is pitch-perfect throughout. Don Juan and Mrs - oops, Ms - Johnson are standouts - truly laugh-out-loud funny.
The story overall lacks emotional grit (my 5 stars are for Phylicia’s ability to lift the material), which is a pity because the potential was definitely there, and as granddaughters go Journey is too everything to be believable. I haven’t seen the movie this book derives from, but for me the added sugar rush of inspirational songs about needing to believe, etc. etc. would certainly have been a candy bar too many; in this audiobook version they can be avoided.
