Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Millie, last seen in Millie Waits for the Mail (Walker, 2007), is asked by the mail carrier to deliver his homemade Christmas gifts to the farmer and the other animals at her farm. After a series of mishaps through the deep snow, the disheveled cow finally makes it home with the presents–but because the tags were lost, the gifts get mixed up to humorous but happy effect (the chicks use the dog's basket as a toy castle; Millie uses the farmer's coffeepot cover as an udder warmer). The full-page color illustrations are absolutely hysterical and filled with tiny details that will reward careful scrutiny; the animals in particular have complex and satisfying lives, to judge by all their activities and accoutrements. An absolute must for warm Christmas chuckles.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library

The kid and I found this Millie adventure significantly less hilarious and entertaining than Millie Waits for the Mail, as it is a straightforward "lost in the snow" tale rather than the comic brilliance inherent in a bored cow terrorizing a hapless mailman, but the artwork is still highly amusing. Four-year-olds and thirty-four-year-olds alike will get lost in the little details, particularly as they relate to what those chickens are up to this time.

*Spoiler alert*

The mailman's crush on the farmer was a funny twist.

Got two Millie books for 4YO son for Christmas and we ALL love them! Millie is terrifically funny, the stories are sweet and engaging, and for someone who has lived in Europe, the wonderful illustrations give us much extra pleasure as we see things we are familiar with that you only find in Europe (as the illustrator is a European). We also see something new almost every time we study the pictures. You won't be disappointed in these lovely stories! I hope more will be coming out soon!

We got this book as part of our 25 days of books for Christmas. I read a lot of books that month but this one was the favorite of all. It is a cute story about a cow who gets lost. He is carrying gifts. The gifts get re-arranged and in the end, while Christmas doesn't work out as planned, it is even better for the people receiving the gifts. A cute book that caused my kids several laugh out loud moments.

Good kids books are not the easiest to find. Or better said kid books that you can read time and time and time again, again that you are pleased to read have been gems to me because we read a lot of books and we read them over and over again. This book is funny and my 22 month old daughter loves it. THis book and Fortunately by Remy Charlip are her favorites.
