The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey features incredible illustrations that add to the warm tone of the story. The repetitive actions of the three main characters stand out in this story and emphasize the subtle changes in Jonathan's demeanor over time. Many children cannot relate to the heartbreak of Jonathan Toomey, but they can easily find themselves in the shoes of fidgeting, talkative Thomas. His eagerness and the widow McDowell's kindness are a believable cause for Jonathan's transition from being Mr. Gloomy to Mr. Toomey.
