Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this amiable tale of catastrophe averted, Mrs. Santa Claus awakens on a morning just before Christmas to find her husband's face covered with spots. And as if that weren't alarming enough, the reindeer are similarly afflicted. Wasting no time, the harried Mrs. Claus puts the finishing touches on all the toys; but how will she deliver them without reindeer? Her resourcefulness knows no bounds: she fashions a ``flying machine'' out of her bike, a vacuum cleaner and an umbrella, then makes the appointed rounds. When she returns home, Santa and his steeds are back on their feet, and their industrious helper ``enjoys a long, hot soak.'' The real bonbons here are Ives's irresistible illustrations, merrily colored and crowded with delectable details. Her array of treats includes the heroine's furry reindeer slippers, framed pictures of Santa and his reindeer, intricately painted furniture adorned with seasonal motifs and--a special tidbit for little eyes--a slew of freshly made toys. Ages 3-7. (Nov.)
