About this title


This is the story of David and Xinni. When David sees Xinni and Xinni sees David, suddenly nothing is dull anymore. The moment is missed by both David's father and Xinni's father, but for David and Xinni, having seen something they could never have expected or imagined, nothing will ever be quite the same. Winifred Morris has written several books for older readers, and one other picture book, "The Magic Leaf". Maureen Hyde graduated in Fine Arts at UCLA.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Boy and elf, in a snowy forest with their fathers, meet by chance. Both young folk wander off and happen upon each other. They exchange stares for a pregnant moment, then their respective fathers, apparently not noticing anything unusual, whisk them away. There are lots of flaws here. Both fathers (but especially Xinni's!) must be remarkably near-sighted to miss one another, the young folk are together for only a few seconds, there's no hint of a repeat meeting, and the only sign of change is David's subsequent appreciation of woodland beauty. Bland illustrations feature pointy-eared, large-eyed elves. They might as well be human, as there's certainly nothing eldritch about their house or daily life. Xinni plays with blocks, a teddy, and other familiar toys (not a book in sight) as his mother silently does the sweeping and sewing. Shallow, abbreviated, and incidental. --John Peters, New York Public Library
