Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Creative thinking (and some clever recycling) help save the day in a sweet Christmas story that celebrates the shared pleasures of friendship.

Humphrey is a giant, and Leetree, his best friend, is an elf. Together they love making wrapping paper for all of Santas presents. But this year Santa has asked them to grow a Christmas tree, and the pair couldnt be more excited! They take great care with their project, planting and watering, snipping and pruning. Finally, the tree is wrapped and ready, and Humphrey and Leetree set off to deliver it. But when disaster strikes, the giant and the elf must come up with a way to make things right. From a small idea comes a big plan—and a surprise no one in Christmastown will soon forget!

Review:

"Packed with delightful and humorous touches, Light's holiday story introduces Humphrey, a giant, and Leetree, a tiny elf, who are responsible for making Santa's wrapping paper (Leetree rides a tricycle across one roll to give it purple stripes). When Santa asks them to grow a special Christmas tree, they show off their respective talents (moving big rocks, pulling tiny weeds) and their ingenuity when the tree meets with an accident. Besides being a refreshingly original addition to the Christmas canon, Light's story demonstrates that, big or small, everyone has gifts to offer--any time of year. Ages 3 — 6. (Sept.)"
