Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
In the 1970s, artist Holly Hobbie (also author-illustrator of the acclaimed "Toot and Puddle" books) gave her name to an old-fashioned country girl in a sunbonnet who quickly became a best-seller; now Holly Hobbie has taken on a new identity as the modern great-granddaughter of the original. This time around she's a chic ten-year-old with two best friends, a TV series of her own, and a book series called "Holly Hobbie & Friends." In this Christmas story Holly, Amy, and Carrie ("cool girls with big hearts") start the Christmas season with caroling and rehearsing for a Christmas pageant. When the friends discover that a young widow with twin boys is still too grief-stricken to celebrate the holiday, they devise a plan to draw her back into the community. In the midst of their many winter activities Holly comes up with a sweet idea that helps the Christmas spirit prevail. Kids will have many ways to enjoy the preteen fashions, the close friendships, and the cozy, small town atmosphere: books, DVDs, games, toys, prints and posters, dolls and outfits, and even a "Hey Girls Club!" This Holly, no longer drawn by her namesake, has a totally different look from her shy, patchwork-aproned relative but retains the wholesome charm with her smiling, freckled face and jaunty cap. Despite (or because of) the heavy commercialization of Holly, she'll probably be a success and, for nostalgic parents, her great-grandmother is making a comeback with a new line of products.
