Overview

Merry Christmas, Peanut! by Terry Border

A sweet (or is it salty?) Christmas story with heart, humor, and plenty of punny holiday cheer. 

Peanut is going over the river and through the woods to his grandmother's house for Christmas, but getting there is a food-filled adventure for this little nut! First he gets stuck in a traffic jam (make that a traffic jelly), then the bridge is closed so he has to take a (gravy) boat across the river, where he gets lost in a forest of (cookies shaped like) Christmas trees! But while the delays dismay his friends and family, Peanut embraces his role as the Merry Christmas Nut to cheer them up.

In this heart-warming and humorous Christmas tale based on the real-life adventures of one peanut — including ice-skating on popsicles and making snow angels in powdered-sugar snow — our food friends know that the true meaning of Christmas is joining with our loved ones to celebrate the joy of being together.

From the creator of Peanut Butter & Cupcake, tihs book is perfect for every family who wants to giggle together this holiday season.

Praise for Terry Border's picture books:

Merry Christmas, Peanut!

"As with Border’s previous books, the real delights come from his carefully and humorously staged scenes."—Publishers Weekly

Happy Birthday, Cupcake!


"As in his earlier picture book, Border's characters are skillfully crafted food items with basic wire limbs arranged in simple landscapes....Preschoolers will be delighted with the visual mayhem."—Kirkus Reviews
 
Peanut Butter & Cupcake:

"[Z]any creative photographs. [A] read-aloud hit."—School Library Journal
