Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Intricate and elegant cut-paper designs enliven Moore's poem with black silhouetted figures, peek-through pages and one glorious pop-up at the end. Readers will be captivated by the striking contrasts: dark human and animal figures and a few dramatic splashes of red, gold and green playing against creamy backgrounds of freshly fallen snow and bright December moonlight. Finely rendered and fun-to-spot details-e.g., mice playing in the attic-will also keep readers poring over this book's sturdy pages. Ages 4-up. (Oct.)

School Library Journal

Gr 2 Up-Combining die-cut paper, pop-ups, and silhouettes with a lot of white space and a striking palette of black, red, and green with touches of gold, this is an elegant version of the Christmas classic. Windows and flaps reveal a detailed look into the sleepy Victorian home and its nighttime visitor; the art is accomplished and appealing, but somewhat remote. The finale-an elaborate and very delicate pop-up of the sleigh and reindeers flying over the town-make this more of an item for display than a book for circulation.-Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library

Kirkus Reviews
Exquisite illustrations, impeccable design and a snowy, surprising conclusion add up to a memorable interpretation of the beloved Christmas poem. Puttapipat's illustrations are silhouettes in black and white with highlights of deep red, green and shiny gold, and though the silhouette style is an old one, in the hands of this talented artist, the approach is refreshingly new. The large format using heavy paper includes a window on several pages, each offering a glimpse into the next spread, as well as a flap on the first spread that allows the family's Victorian home to open up like a doll house. Children will enjoy finding the tiny details in this view of the house and then looking for them in succeeding spreads from other perspectives. The carefully chosen font, gold page borders and patterned endpapers are further indications of the volume's thoughtful design, along with the cover in holly-berry red with Santa and the reindeer in flight. The final spread is a complete surprise: a spectacularly gorgeous, intricately designed pop-up scene of Santa's sleigh and reindeer taking off from the rooftop with the snow-covered city buildings behind.
