Review:

"'New York will be the new North Pole!' declares cherry-haired Auntie Claus — she's decided to forgo her annual 'business trip' up north so her niece, Sophie, can perform in the school play. Christmas characters like the Sugar Plum Fairy and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future flock to the decadent Bing Cherry Hotel, but transforming the Big Apple into the North Pole comes with humorous complications. Primavera's vibrant acrylics fill the city to the brim with holiday energy (including the milky glow of the aurora borealis), making the third in the series an enchanting spectacle. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Each year Auntie Claus mysteriously disappears just after Halloween and doesn't return until Valentine's Day--but not this year. Sophie wants nothing more than to be the Sugar Plum Fairy in "The Nutcracker" ballet, and so Auntie Claus comes home for the holiday. Full color.
