Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3—Hannah is an old woman living simply in her mountain cabin. One day while gathering wood in her stocking feet, she finds a boot. Hannah is delighted and wishes for a second boot and then for warm mittens and finally for a big fancy house. The boots and the mittens suit her well, but the big house doesn't feel as comfortable. When Santa Claus arrives—missing his boots—Hannah gives hers back, and all of the other gifts disappear as well. Santa leaves the old woman with new boots and mittens and a little dog to keep her company. This retelling of the folktale of the "Fisherman's Wife" who greedily wishes for too much has a kinder ending, and Pinkney's paintings are appropriate to the folkloric quality of this entry. VERDICT A worthy holiday reimagining, best enjoyed as an independent read or as a read-aloud in a small group setting.—Virginia Walter, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies


Praise for The Christmas Boot

Winner of the Golden Kite Award for Picture Book Text

"[A] folksy fable about deprivation, abundance, and the spirit of Christmas. . . . As always, Pinkney's soft, colorful watercolors find deep beauty and interest in simple things." —
The New York Times Book Review

* "Pinkney enhances the strong text with his delightful watercolor illustrations filled with homey details and swirling snowflakes. . . . A winner of a story with enchanting illustrations by a master." —
Kirkus, starred review

* "Gently told and exquisitely illustrated, this holiday jewel centers on Hannah Greyweather, a poor woman who lives in a 'ramshackle cabin' and finds a boot in the snow. . . . Pinkney's meticulously detailed art exudes old-world charm and is a splendid match for Wheeler's tender tale about taking only what one needs."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The story's warm folktale feel is heightened by the Caledcott medalist Pinkney's glowing art, alive with details and overflowing with ambiance. . . . Here is a holiday book that provides something to talk about as well as look at."—Booklist
