Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Said Santa Claus one winter night,

I think it's fair toys should have a little say

on where they'll be Christmas Day."

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Santa's idea is to let the toys choose their new owners; thus, children can be absolutely sure that the item they saw advertised a gazillion times in the months leading up to Christmas really, truly wanted to be theirs. Unfortunately, the rhyme is not going to mean much to the intended audience. "So in the weeks before we fly/together through the starry sky,/find out which child you'd like to spend/your life with as a special friend." Chen's delicate artwork is appealing, with nice details that work best with small groups or one-on-one. This is one idea that simply is not going to get much traction.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
