Publishers Weekly, 2015-09-14 Little does Santa know that, in Ercolini's zippy spin on this holiday poem, he'll be disembarking at the home of a family of Christmas superfans. Not a creature is stirring, but the house is utterly crammed with decorations. Colored lights adorn the house and the trees in the yard, while ornaments hang from every surface imaginable indoors: the tree, sure, but also the bannister, beds, and walls. And when Santa lands on the roof, he's dwarfed by a massive inflatable version of himself-naturally he uses the opportunity to take a photo with his reindeer, who are dressed in outrageously dorky costumes as a cowboy, daredevil, and more. The text sticks to the traditional, but readers will be hooting over the hilarious details in Ercolini's borderline manic cartoons. Ages 3-5. Agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates.

Publishers Weekly, 2011-09-26 Santore has illustrated many classic stories, including Snow White, The Wizard of Oz, and The Little Mermaid, and he now brings to life Moore's "A Visit from St. Nicholas" in characteristically elegant and detail-rich paintings. His is a very traditional vision, as he brings readers inside a stately colonial home, tastefully appointed with wreaths, garlands, and stockings. In a particularly nice bit of design, when the narrator "Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash," readers can do the same, opening a double-page gatefold that reveals a quiet village blanketed by snow-and a sleigh silhouetted against the moon. It's a gorgeous interpretation of a beloved holiday classic. All ages. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Publishers Weekly, 2006-09-25 Moses (Silent Night) does his family legacy proud, putting his own cozy folk-style stamp on this much-loved holiday poem, a text that also inspired his great grandmother, Grandma Moses, whose picture-book edition has been a classic for several generations. A subtle aerial perspective allows readers to watch Santa's approach (over several breathtaking wordless spreads) to a small farming community in the glisten of moon-on-snow, a landscape dotted with snowmen, shocks of hay and wreath-adorned doors. Old-fashioned toys, wood-burning stoves and other details, often highlighted in spot illustrations, set this rendition in a bygone century. But the overall tone of this elegant volume, packaged with a bonus ornament, exudes a timeless Christmas magic perfect for family sharing. All ages. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Publishers Weekly, 2006-09-25 Spirin's (The Tale of the Firebird) luxurious watercolor-and-colored pencil compositions whisk readers to what looks like a snowy New England village in the 1800s for his graceful reimagining of Moore's poem. He renders every chimney, windowpane and bare tree branch with crisp style and care; Saint Nick is effortlessly jolly, donning blue boots with his traditional red fur garb. Each passage opens with a tiny spot illustration, accompanied by a vertical border piece on the side, shaped like a grandfather clock or a bookmark and depicting some village scenery. Youngsters will be pleased that the artist breaks with tradition, casting the narrator as a boy (instead of the father). An edition sure to be cherished, especially by Spirin fans and art lovers.

Publishers Weekly, 2007-10-22 The Mary Engelbreit Gift Set arrives fully loaded with the well-loved illustrator's The Night Before Christmas, an audio CD read by Jim Dale and a keepsake ornament. The last, a cheerful disc, features a mouse asleep in a teacup, not even thinking of stirring. (HarperCollins, $25 ages 3-8 40p ISBN 9780-06-136495-2; Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
