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

The book is a fun change when it comes to a Christmas story. The illustrations were beautiful and bright, which will help draw the child into this story, which will teach them a few key lessons. It expresses a relationship between the characters and talks about what it feels like to be lost in an unfamiliar place. This magical story is a nice addition to your holiday and Christmas collection.

This book is absolutely enchanting!The pictures are colorful and done very skillfully.When reading this book you are equally absorbed by the beautiful illustrations and story, which complement each other perfectly.It is the kind of story that will give a child that starry eyed look and will be drawn to look through on their own and read again.The story is unique and really conveys the feelings of the character.Mesmerizing from beginning to end.
