Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Flying cows? That's just one of the liberties the tenderfoot author takes in shifting the Moore chestnut to a cowboy-centric setting. But a focus on the hardscrabble life of a rancher leaves little room for child-friendly detail or holiday cheer in this re-imagining of the poem, which references chaw, and a nip to ease a bad hip. During the Christmas Eve encounter, an un-jolly Santa is roughed up, lassoed and nearly dragged by a horse before the rancher vaguely recognizes the red suit. No wonder the rancher concludes, And somehow I knew [Santa] wouldn't be back—readers might not be, either. All ages. (Oct.)

From the Inside Flap

"Forget Dancer, Prancer, Comet, and Vixen. . . . Good Clement, wherever he is, will not be gnashing his teeth." --New York Times Book Review The Rocky Mountains come alive on a cold Christmas Eve as a cowboy makes his way home. Upon arrival, he spies a big, fat red feller on the rooftop of his cabin and lassoes the suspected cattle rustler. Ordinarily, fate would have dictated dire consequences, but childhood memories reveal the stranger as Santa Claus and the two reunite. The pair bask in the warmth of the cabin as the cowboy tells of his Rocky Mountain days. He lives a hard life on the Western frontier but would never consider anything else. When Santa takes flight to continue his journey, he leaves behind a package to ease his new friend's troubles along with a wish: May your trail be easy and your burden be light! A new twist on Clement C. Moore's classic Christmas poem, this book plays off of its Rocky Mountain setting and the drawling dialect characteristic of the area. Rocky Mountain Night Before Christmas is a welcome addition to any collection of Christmas tales and legends. (Back Flap) Joe Gribnau is a graduate of the University of Montana and obtained his master's degree in literacy from Walla Walla College. A resident of Washington state, he is an elementary-school teacher who enjoys writing. Mr. Gribnau is a fifth-generation Montanan with hobbies ranging from rock climbing to archery, but his greatest joy is being "Dad" to his three kids.  Salima Alikhan has been writing and illustrating her own stories since she was a child.  A member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, she has published four trade picture books and designed cover and interior illustrations for several magazines.  She lives in Austin, Texas.

This was written by a personal friend of ours and we received it as a gift. I ordered more for family and we all love it even if it wasn't written by Joe. If you love Christmas you must have this for the season.
