Those who are into the art work ofSusan Wheeler and delight in hercharming world of Holly Pond Hill,will want to add this book to theircollection. As a book for childrenwith its Christmas theme, I think itis more suited for 11-year olds whohaven't yet been lured into a Barbieor pop culture -- there are still some around!! Wheeler's enchantinganimals are celebrating the Christmasseason in this book, and many familiar traditions are depicted. Herversion of Santa on the rooftop willbring a smile! This book is not as anelaborate edition as her 'Hugs andKisses Contest', but still one thatwill please and touch the heart.
