Review:

"The world has never seemed fancier to Nancy than at Christmas: there's abundant snow, the house is decked out in lights and, on Christmas Eve, Nancy has a special angel tree topper to hang. The trouble is, Christmas Eve comes with a lot of waiting (Nancy keeps busy decorating cookies, wrapping presents and caroling while awaiting family members' arrival). Nancy's ebullience results in a tearful mishap, but the glamorous heroine's vivacious personality, captured once again in Glasser's cheerfully detailed illustrations and a sprinkling of fancy vocabulary, proves evergreen. Ages 4 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

But the first tree has too many birds, and the next has too many squirrels--they're not quiet at all! At last, when the snow begins to fall, Cork and Fuzz find the perfect place to rest their heads: under a lovely outdoor Christmas tree. In the end, Cork realizes what makes this day so special is that he is “in a beautiful place with my friend.”
