Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[Fearrington] shows why so many families participate in this tradition year after year." Booklist, ALA
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"Blink, blink, dazzle, flash./ Gleam, glow, sparkle, shine!"so Fearrington describes the electrical extravaganza that is a community decorated for Christmas. Midnight-blue canvases flicker with swatches of bright pastel, transforming nighttime streets into a radiant festival. This high- wattage account of a familiar family holiday ritual is bound to inspire many a Christmas Eve drive. All ages. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It's night, and the family decides to get in their car and head to town to view all the Christmas lights. Along the way they pass a tower that is covered with brilliant lights, a house with strings of lights on the roof and sides, and live trees decorated on a farm. Once in town, the Chrismas lights brighten apartment balconies, outline office buildings, and at one location, they set off "...a house so bright we can almost hear the lights: blink, blink, dassle, flash." The colored lights in pastels are bright spots on dark black, blue, and brown backgrounds.
