Synopses & Reviews
A cozy, visually rich celebration of Christmas to pore over
Readers are off to the North Pole in this brimming holiday treat. On each page, a deceptively simple item--stocking, snowman, reindeer--pulls readers into a nostalgic, exquisitely detailed moment of the yuletide journey: a trip in Santa's sleigh, supper with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, watching the elves hard at work, and finally arriving home in time for Christmas morning.
Secret clues, plus hidden allusions to classic Christmas carols, elevate this from a gorgeous book to an interactive holiday treasure hunt--a natural fit for the whole family at Christmastime.
"The roly-poly, free-spirited stars (and excellent sledders) of Snowmen at Night are back, this time to celebrate Christmas, snowman style. Tree trimming, carols and ice cream are all part of the festive agenda as is a visit from 'the snowman Kris Kringle.' Jazzy rhyming verse keeps a buoyant party beat as Mark Buehner's holiday lights and street lamps twinkle and glow like the real thing. Readers will smile watching these nimble and nattily accessorized snowmen dancing, decorating cookies and playing the fiddle before they settle back into place for Christmas, human style. Seek-and-find images on each page add to the excitement; a boxed set of both books doubles the fun. ($32.99 ISBN 0-8037-3108-6). Ages 4-up. (Sept.)"
