Overview

A Christmas story for all year round!

Joe's Snack Bar is a favorite summer spot where happy customers from all over town come to buy ice cream cones and french fries. But every time autumn rolls around, Joe shuts down shop and disappears until the next summer. The townspeople all have their own theories about where he goes: "He's gone to the moon," cries tiny June. "He's on a safari," says Charlie McFarley. "In Okefenokee!" screams Mrs. Bodokey. They're all wrong, of course. Joe's actually in charge at the North Pole three quarters of the year, but only Joe and the reader will ever know. Food-and-fun-filled illustrations show how each person imagines what Joe could be up to.

Because Joe's Snack Bar always closes for the season, the townspeople speculate about where Joe goes for the winter.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Fresh and funny." --Starred, Publishers Weekly

"Old Joe with his round belly and snow white beard is a familiar sight at his summer snack shack selling ice cream and other treats. But in the fall, Joe boards up the shack and leaves. Where does he go? That's what everyone wonders . . . It is the way the comings and goings of the town folk and their invented musing about Joe play against each other that makes the book work so well. As always Pearson's line-and-watercolor artwork is chock-full of things to see." -- Starred, Booklist

"This book touches on skills increasingly incorporated in preschool and primary-grade curriculums - prediction and extrapolation - and it's fun." --School Library Journal

Booklist
Old Joe . . . is a familiar sight . . . But in the fall, Joe boards up the shack and leaves. Where does he go?.
School Library Journal
This book touches on skills increasingly incorporated in preschool and primary-grade curriculums — prediction and extrapolation — and it's fun.
Publishers Weekly
In a starred review, PW said, "Readers will have fun speculating along with the customers of a popular snack bar as to the off-season destination of its plump, white-bearded owner. This light-hearted romp concludes with a wordless surprise ending: Joe is none other than Santa." Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
One of the cleverest entries this season looks nothing like a holiday book. Cartoon illustrations chockablock with witty details serve as a red herring for readers, who will have fun speculating along with the customers of a popular snack bar as to the off-season destination of Joe, the plump, white-bearded owner. "`He's gone to the moon,' cried tiny June," who pictures Joe handing ice cream cones and hot dogs to astronauts. " `He's in the city,' suggested Kitty," who envisions him on a crowded street, serving throngs of pedestrians from a sidewalk stand. Fresh and funny, this light-hearted romp concludes with a wordless surprise ending: Joe is none other than Santa. Ages 3-7. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Joe's Snack Bar is a popular place during the warm months of the year but once the chill sets into the air, Joe closes up shop. No one knows where Joe goes and he isn't about to tell. Joe's curious neighbors offer up humorous, rhyming suggestions as to what Joe's destination might be. Readers will enjoy studying page after page of busy illustrations searching for Joe and his tasty treats in his "new" surroundings. An unexpected ending will give young readers food for thought and the inspiration to make up their own destinations for Joe.

    This book is a wonderful read for children. Kids love the illustrations and the secret they find out at the end of the book.
