Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A gingerbread horse serves as magic carpet in the dreams of a poor boy who longs to receive a rocking horse for Christmas. Unfortunately, Mattingly's (The Miracle Tree) mishmash of fantasy, tradition and religion makes for a disjointed and confusing read. Mullins's (V for Vanishing) mixed-media visuals, which inventively combine torn-tissue paper collage, crayon and lino block stamping, serve as a brilliant translation of Mattingly's more descriptive scenes. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Jonni wants a rocking horse, but there is no space in his room and his parents don't have the money for such a toy. They do buy him a toy rocking horse. As they head on home Jonni and his parents stop to visit a Nativity scene. He sees that the Christ child has no gift so he leaves his rocking horse. He gets a gingerbread rocking horse as a Christmas present and hangs it on his window. Later that night, he looks at the horse and magically it talks. They set off on a fanciful journey. A warm father and son relationship are also part of the theme.
