From Publishers Weekly:

The worst person in the world is a crab apple who dislikes nearly everything and everybody in his life--but most of all he despises Christmas. To him, the holiday lights are a waste of electricity, carolers are trespassers and Santa is just plain fat. Ignoring the old man's protests, two well-meaning children leave a fruitcake on his doorstep. Just as the worst person is about to throw the gift in the trash, he slips on some ice--beginning a sled ride that lands him on a neighbor's doorstep, fruitcake in hand. Reaction to his seemingly kind gesture helps to thaw the cranky man's heart, if only a little. Stevenson's ( Could Be Worse! ; July ) frowning, bespectacled worst person possesses a keen wit and equally sharp tongue that eventually prove endearing despite his prickly manner. The artist's characteristically sparse ink sketches and light watercolor washes furnish his story with an underlying warmth that will be welcomed year-round. Ages 4-up.

From Kirkus Reviews:

It was inevitable that this perennial Scrooge would finally encounter Christmas and mellow just a bit; still, fans should be amused by his typically curmudgeonly shenanigans before an unpremeditated sled journey precipitates him into a neighborhood party that softens him up in spite of himself. As usual, Stevenson's expertly scribbled illustrations are more than half the fun--eye-pleasing and witty. (Picture book. 4+) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
