Overview

As Christmas approaches, everything is going according to plan—the toys are finished and the sleighs are packed. But when all of Santa's helper's develop a terrible case of Christmas spots, it begins to look as if Christmas might not happen. But don't count Santa's littlest helper out! Together with his animal friends, the Littlest Santa packs the sleigh and sets out on an around-the-world journey to deliver Christmas gifts—one child and one country at time. From the talented creators of the New York Times Best Illustrated Book, Brave Charlotte, comes a heart-warming tale of friendship and goodwill.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Carroll Roberts
When all of Santa's main helpers contract the "Christmas pox" on Christmas Eve, Santa's littlest helper and his animal friends must take on the job of delivering toys to all the children of the world. This is a charming little tale, heightened by Wilson's beautiful illustrations. Preschoolers will be delighted by the sight of Santa's helpers stuck in bed with red dots all over their faces, looking especially grumpy because they do not get to have any gingerbread. But it is the nighttime tour of New York City, Paris, Venice, and London that really makes this book stand out from the crowd of holiday reading. The second in the "Santa's Littlest Helper" series, this is a Christmas story that preschoolers and their parents are sure to enjoy. Reviewer: Barbara Carroll Roberts

PreS-Gr 1-Santa's Littlest Helper(Bloomsbury, 2004) is back. This time all of the other helpers get sick (Christmas Pox) so the Littlest Helper drafts his animal friends to help the Chief Helper deliver presents. The story is quite sweet, if nothing extraordinary; what will attract readers are the richly colored spreads depicting not just a snowy North Pole but also New York, Paris, London, and Venice. It's a must where the first book is popular, and libraries needing more Santa books should also consider it.-Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
