Review:

Ever have one of those days? One late Christmas Eve, after delivering presents all around the world, Santa is finally crawling into bed when he makes a horrible discovery. Harvey Slumfenburger's present is still in his sack! His reindeer are already tucked into bed, but Santa must find a way to get that present to Harvey, a little boy who lives in a hut at the top of the Roly Poly Mountain. Wearily, he trudges out into the cold winter night. Fortunately, a veritable fleet of vehicles becomes available to assist him in his mission. When a jeep skids in the snow, a boy with a motorbike appears. When the motorbike can go no farther, a girl with skis picks up our wayward elfin hero. And once the present is finally deposited safely in Harvey Slumfenburger's stocking, Santa still has to make the return trip!

John Burningham's unique and exquisite style has won him many fans and honors over the decades, including a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book for this droll story. A two-time Kate Greenaway Medal recipient, this compelling storyteller combines gently repetitive text with fantastic, unusual illustrations, using pen and ink, watercolor wash, and collage to create stunning works of art on every page. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
