Marylin Hafner illustrated many beloved books for children, including the seasonal favorites It's Christmas and It's Halloween, both by Jack Prelutsky, and A Carnival of Animals, by Sid Fleischman.From Booklist:
From verses about the Christmas tree and the Santa wish list to those about putting on a nativity play and singing carols, the poems in this I Can Read title celebrate warm holiday traditions with a wry sweetness, always true to a kid’s viewpoint and beyond generic greeting-card representations. There are a number of fiascos. A girl has sent off her Christmas cards with her pictures and rhymes, but no one got them. Did she forget the stamps? When the family bundles up and goes out caroling on Christmas Eve, they sing so badly that the neighbors shut their windows. The girl, though, thinks that no matter how sour they sound, there’s no family sweet as hers. Hafner’s line-and-watercolor pictures illustrate the bouncing, rhyming words in clear, playful holiday scenes that show the mischief and mess-ups, and always the joy. Preschool-Grade 1. --Hazel Rochman
