Millie's new job as a mail cow keeps her very busy. Christmastime is especially hectic, and she can barely wait for the milking to be done before she's out delivering presents.
On Christmas Eve, at the end of a long day, the mail carrier sends Millie home with all the presents he's made for the farmer and the other animals. Only, Millie gets a bit confused by the snow-covered landscape. Suddenly everything looks the same, and the farm is nowhere in sight! Can Millie make it home to deliver the presents in time for Christmas? And more important, will the presents make it there in one piece?

Alexander Steffensmeier is also the author and illustrator of Millie Waits for the Mail, which Kirkus Reviews called "simply moo-velous" in a starred review. He studied illustration at the Munster School of Art and is currently a freelance designer for several publishing houses.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1–Millie, last seen in Millie Waits for the Mail (Walker, 2007), is asked by the mail carrier to deliver his homemade Christmas gifts to the farmer and the other animals at her farm. After a series of mishaps through the deep snow, the disheveled cow finally makes it home with the presents–but because the tags were lost, the gifts get mixed up to humorous but happy effect (the chicks use the dog's basket as a toy castle; Millie uses the farmer's coffeepot cover as an udder warmer). The full-page color illustrations are absolutely hysterical and filled with tiny details that will reward careful scrutiny; the animals in particular have complex and satisfying lives, to judge by all their activities and accoutrements. An absolute must for warm Christmas chuckles.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
