Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three grizzled cowboys—Dwight, Darryl, and Dub—are stuck out on the range at Christmastime, roping steers and wrestling longhorns. Reminiscing about their childhood Christmases, they try to make the cowboy camp feel festive—and it's no surprise that a cactus decorated with tin cans, and cows dressed as reindeer, don't fill them with holiday cheer! But a surprise is in store for the Circle D dudes when Santa pays a visit to the cowboy campfire!

Illustrated by award-winning artist John Manders, this deluxe hardcover gives consumers what they expect from Golden Books: a high-quality book at a great value, ready for gift-giving.

Review:

"For three cowboys out on the range, Christmas is looking mighty lonely. '‘No presents,' said Dwight. ‘No stockings,' added Darryl. ‘No Santy,' groaned Dub.' As the cowpokes reminisce about the Christmas trees, cookies, and horses dressed as reindeer of their youths, camp chef Cookie suggests they create their own versions of those traditions. The results aren't great ('charred sugar-molasses-bean cookies' are as bad as they sound), but a surprise visitor gives the cowboys a Christmas to remember. Sanders's humorous, clipped prose and Manders's loose, campfire-lit artwork are just right for the story's down-and-dirty setting. As Dwight puts it, this one's 'a rip-roarin' good time.' Ages 2 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
