Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zelda and Ivy discover the spirit of Christmas, in a holiday book with heartand humor.

Christmas is coming, and Zelda and Ivy have high hopes. Zelda longs for a fancy evening gown, and Ivy has her heart set on a Princess Mimi doll complete with ballet accessories. But when the fox sisters realize that their elderly neighbor, Mrs. Brownlie, is spending Christmas alone, they have more than just their own holiday wishes to think about. Will the Christmas Elves leave something special under the tree for everyone?

With favorite characters, an endearing story line, and beautiful illustrations trimmed with merry details, award-winning author-illustrator Laura McGee Kvasnoskys book about the fabulous fox sisters has all the makings of an

enduring holiday classic.

Review:

"The joy here is not just in the receiving of lovingly tendered presents; it's in the giving — of companionship, affection, and memories, priceless rewards for any season." Booklist

"As always, humor pervades the situations and the dialogue, and the illustrations are full of energy and movement." The Horn Book

"A satisfying holiday story that works as either a long picture book or a transitional chapter book for girls in the primary grades." Kirkus Reviews
