Editorial Reviews

Review

"Delightful. . .With their old-fashioned charm, timeless storytelling, and irresistible humor, the books are destined to win over new generation of readers." - School Library Journal

"If you look at the work of Tomi Ungerer, it's passionate, it's personal, it's marvellous and it's cuckoo, and it's that kind of variety that's always made for good children's literature." - Maurice Sendak, in The New York Times

"The kind of inventive story that will have kids asking for repeated readings." - Karen MacPherson, Scripps Howard News Service

With holiday decorations appearing on Halloween eve it's refreshing to find a that story reflects - in a non-denominational manner - the true spirit of the season. Four pigs overcome their own disappointment and focus on the needs of others. Peace on earth and goodwill toward all. Ungerer is a genius at illustrating and story telling.

Another winner for Tomi Ungerer, my favorite children's author. The story line about the loving family at Christmas and their adventures was so different, yet just as entertaining and heart-warming as ever. I cannot forget to mention the incredible illustrations, with the attention to detail that put Ungerer on the top of my list as well as my students'.
