Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Fans of Father Fox's Pennyrhymes (HarperCollins, 2001) will welcome this glimpse into the family's yuletide celebrations. Rhyming text accompanies cozy images of the large, raggedy, but joyous foxes as they prepare for Christmas. For the most part, the verses lack the folksy, nursery-rhyme quality of Pennyrhymes and aren't particularly memorable, but the illustrations of the busy and ebullient foxes are enticing. As a whole, this book has plenty of warmth, charm, and Christmas spirit.-E. M.

From Booklist

PreS-Gr.2. Clad in patched clothes and a Santa cap, old Father Fox looks as spry as ever, springing across the jacket of this crowd-pleasing book of Christmas verse. Those who remember the classic Father Fox's Pennyrhymes (1971) will find the new book, with its oversize format and larger-scale illustrations, better suited to sharing with groups of children. The short verses create some precise, pleasant images: "The kitchen is bursting with uncles & aunts / With buttery fingers & floury pants," but it is the artwork that will draw children to the book and keep them amused and absorbed. Full of lively details, the ink drawings are washed with glowing watercolors, in tawny browns, muted blues and greens, and jewel-bright details in red and yellow. A Christmas treat for children who will enjoy the bustle and the quiet pleasures of this friendly fox family. Carolyn Phelan

This book took a while to get to me but......it just MELTED my heart!!!!! I bought it because 40 years ago out 5 year old's FAVORITE book to have read to her was Father Foxes Penny Rhymes...and it is an amazing sing songy book to read and rock to. We spent countless hours in a big old antique rocker reading and rocking and laughing and we built such wonderful memories! Well I just purchased that book a few months ago for her as her daughter is now engaged to be married and in anticipation of the time she will spend with her Granchildren. Then I found Father Foxes Christmas Rhymes......as I started reading I was so so absolutely delighted that I found this AMAZING book all about CHTISTMAS, not HOLIDAYS! It is soooo sweet and about the FAMILY and gathering together and the JOY of sharing, and on top of all of that it is set in the beautiful sing songy rhyme that is sooooo infectous!!! I LOVED IT, and now I have also ordered it in hardback as another gift to my daughter,......in, of course, the anticipation of many hours of joy and love being carried on in another generation of our FAMILY! Thank You Clyde Watson!

Format: Hardcover
The eighteen Fox poems are XMAS treasures;
their pretty pictures provide beautiful sights.
While the young children will laugh with delight;
adults will adore these rhyming pleasures.

This book, like Watson and Watson's other books (Applebet and Father Fox's Pennyrhymes), is among my family's favorites to read aloud. Clyde and Wendy, we want more of your Father Fox books!!!
