Horn Book Guide Reviews 2017 Spring

A group of forest-animal friends sets out to return a gift that dropped from Santa's sleigh: a present for the "New Baby" (not that baby) at a nearby farm. Tired and hungry, the friends trudge along, thoughts of Santa (also journeying through the cold, dark night) urging them forward. Digitally colored pencil and ink-wash illustrations capture the characters' emotions. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2016 #6

A group of forest-animal friends embarks on a quest to return a gift to its rightful owner: the present that dropped from Santa's sleigh is for the "New Baby" (though not that new baby) at a nearby farm. "Santa would want us to deliver it," says Rabbit, and the friends set off, cheerfully—at first. As they trudge along, tired and hungry, thoughts of Santa (who is also journeying through the cold, dark night) urge them forward. Listeners and readers will empathize with the characters' emotions, captured in friendly, digitally colored pencil-and-ink-wash illustrations. The writing is simple yet expressive. And for those readers hoping to land on the "nice" list, the story's last line may resonate the most: "Santa always knows." simran p. gupta Copyright 2016 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

PW Reviews 2016 September #4

After Santa drops a package in the woods, a quartet of animals attempts to deliver the gift to its proper destination, in a tender story set in a hushed forest. George (Duck, Duck, Dinosaur) succinctly sketches personalities for her heroes—Rabbit is the exuberant optimist, Bird gets things done, Deer helps cheerfully, and Squirrel is a kvetch. There are some hiccups on their way to a nearby farmhouse, but it's all worth it when they see the New Baby open her gift from Santa, a rattle. (Or, as Squirrel puts it, "a noisy, lumpy stick.") Graegin (How to Share with a Bear) creates sweeping expanses of moonlit snow for the animals to traverse under midnight blue Christmas Eve skies, creating an atmosphere of quiet magic as the animals discover the rewards of doing a kind deed. Ages 4–8. Author's agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management. Illustrator's agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Oct.)
