A bouncy, zany, holiday read-aloud: For kids who love Snowmen All Year and can’t *not* watch the classic Grinch again, here’s a burst of funny, rhyming fun for a whole-family read-aloud.
Commercial art by a rising kidlit illustrator: Eda Kaban brings her expressive, accessible characters and great sense of humor.
Why can’t Christmas last all year?: Humorously—and persuasively!—answers the age old kid-question.
Classic holiday themes: We can all stand reminding that the true joy of Christmas isn’t stuff and sweets and a houseful of holiday characters, but the close-knit comfort of family.
Debut author to watch: This is Billy Sharff’s first picture book, with another, non-holiday rhyming romp to follow that will steal your heart.
“Story and art make for a smileworthy book with lots of playful silliness and a gentle reminder about the heart of Christmas. Here, too much Santa is a bad thing done just right.” —Kirkus
“Accompanied by vibrant illustrations full of the color and movement, this is a fun and silly story that will be giggled over while shared time and again during the holiday season…. Holiday hijinks reminiscent of Caralyn’s Buehner’s Snowmen at Night make this a worthy addition to the holiday fare. —SLJ
“Rhyming, irreverent lines from Sharff [and] polished, high-energy cartooning by Kaban visualizes constant-Christmas chaos [with a] creative solution.” —Publishers Weekly
”Energetic cartoon illustrations, featuring a creative problem-solving Black girl and her parents, capture the over-the-top premise, making the most of the hilarious chaos." —The Horn Book
