Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
Twins Maya and Miguel Santos are stars of their own cartoon series on PBS KIDS GO!, which will probably be familiar to readers attracted to this Christmas story. Their parents may be familiar with O. Henry's short story The Gift of the Magi, featuring a similar plot twist, though in different circumstances. For Maya and Miguel, it's Christmas shopping time and they're out of money. When their garage sale isn't successful, Maya takes her favorite Melissa Rojas charm to a pawnshop so she can buy her brother a frame for his best baseball card; in the meantime, Miguel is selling his beloved card to get a bracelet for Maya's charm. After opening their gifts, the huge-eyed, ever-smiling kids are better at solving the problem than O. Henry's lovers were back in 1906. All ends happily with both twins reclaiming their prized possessions by working for the pawnshop owner. ¡Feliz Navidad! This short holiday tale, with its big, gaudily colored cartoon pictures, bounces along to its conclusion merrily enough, though, like all adaptations from cartoons, it's more effective in its original form with animation and sound. The twins' affection for each other comes through, as does their satisfaction with the outcome, knowing that each was willing to sacrifice for the other. For fans of the TV series, this short spin-off might make a cheery stocking stuffer.
