Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Cat siblings Harry and Emily must defer some of the pleasures of Christmas when a snowstorm prevents the family from driving to Grandma and Grandpa's, but they discover the beauty of a living tree covered with snow and icicles and the joy of making popcorn and cranberry decorations for deer to eat. The chief delight is in the characters' natural dialogue as they interact, despite restrictions imposed by the beginning-reader format. As in the other titles in the series, naive ink-with-watercolor illustrations help decode the text and add a light, childlike quality to the book.-S. P.

From Booklist

Gr. 1-2. Kittens Harry and Emily return for another holiday story in this engaging series for beginning readers. Planning to spend Christmas at their grandparents' house, Harry and Emily help with preparations such as buying a tree and packing for the trip. The next morning, when a snowstorm delays their planned departure, they amuse themselves by decorating an outdoor Christmas tree with edible treats for wildlife. Good storytelling makes a solid foundation for the childlike look of the illustrations and simple tone of the writing. As they read the four short chapters, children will enjoy the activities and empathize with the emotions of these winsome kittens. Carolyn Phelan

All of the Harry & Emily books are very cute both my boys love them. Illustrations are great! Short, well illustrated chapters keep my reluctant first grader reading!
