Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Snow Cat's secret ride in Santa's pocket on Christmas Eve is suddenly halted when she falls out into the hectic bustle of New York City which is filled with lights, people, and strange other Santas who are not "hers." Cold and frightened, she falls asleep by a fireplace in a house she has entered. Luckily it's a chimney down which her Santa comes, searching for her. So there's a happy ending to this lyrical appreciation of the beauty of a Christmas night. Mortimer's illustrations have the quality of fine miniature paintings in their naturalistic renderings and complex designs. The large and small scenes are rich with saturated colors and festive with snowflakes and holiday lights. They convey both the anxiety of the lost cat and the happy spirit of the holiday in the city. The World Trade Center Towers are still standing here. 2001, HarperCollins Publishers, $15.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
