Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In 1897, the editor of the New York Sun received a letter from Virginia O'Hanlon asking if there really was a Santa Claus. His response has been adapted by Szekeres, and illustrated in her well know style. In this version, Virginia is a cute yellow cat in a bright red dress with yellow hair ribbons and little blue earrings on her pointed ears. Virginia and the audience learn about the true spirit of Christmas and what Santa Claus represents to the children of the world.
School Library Journal
PreSA failed attempt to put a fresh spin on an oft-told and hackneyed tale. The well-known letter by the little girl supposedly written to the editor of the New York Sun in 1897 and the editor's equally well-known reply is replayed here with no changes to the text. The exchange is presented in a small-book format and the young letter-writer is a cat. Although the wide-eyed feline and the rest of her family are shown engaging in a host of holiday activities, the illustrations do little to extend the story or even make it understandable for young audiences. This is a total mismatch of art and text, and the result is particularly jarring. Yes, Virginia, it takes more than cute furry kittens and holiday baubles to make a successful picture book.
