Review

"Newbery Medalist MacLachlan offers a quietly moving Christmas story that illustrates the power of children to change their world.... Floca's delicate, full-page pencil illustrations complement the text with understated emotion."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"The simple, elegant prose tells a warm family story with a classic holiday theme. Floca's graphite and ebony pencil drawings are lush with evocative detail and perfectly complement this lovely offering."-- "School Library Journal"

"With MacLachlan's well-drawn characters and Floca's simple pencil and graphite drawings, it's a poignant story with a classic feel."-- "Publishers Weekly" --This text refers to the paperback edition.
