Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

things are looking grim for Santa on Christmas Eve as he loses his voice and all his reindeer get sick before the night's duties are done. He sends his reindeer off to bed and chooses eight cows to pull his sleigh instead. When Santa overlooks the shivering calf, Sugar Lump raises his voice to let Santa know he can pull the sleigh. A hoarse Santa appreciates the calf's strong voice and invites him into the sleigh to command the cows.

Review:

"Flying cows? That's just one of the liberties the tenderfoot author takes in shifting the Moore chestnut to a cowboy-centric setting. But a focus on the hardscrabble life of a rancher leaves little room for child-friendly detail or holiday cheer in this re-imagining of the poem, which references 'chaw,' and a 'nip' to ease a bad hip. During the Christmas Eve encounter, an un-jolly Santa is roughed up, lassoed and nearly dragged by a horse before the rancher vaguely recognizes the red suit. No wonder the rancher concludes, 'And somehow I knew [Santa] wouldn't be back' — readers might not be, either. All ages." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In this Western mountain verson of Clement Moore's popular poem, Santa leaves a cowboy a Stetson and alligator boots.
