Editorial Reviews

Review

The plotline is simplicity itself, and the text lacks any sentimentality or fluff, allowing the acrylic paintings, reminiscent of Norman Rockwell’s work in their warmth and realism, to enrich and expand the story.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Ibatoulline’s evocative artwork moves [the story] to a higher level. The setting is the 1940s, and the art captures the time beautifully.
—Booklist (starred review)

This simple but powerful story will indeed bring the reader great joy.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Newbury Medalist DiCamillo spins a tale of compassion and holiday warmth.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Yet another wonderful tale from the award-winning author that is beautifully depicted by Ibatoulline.
—Library Media Connection, Highly Recommended

Bagram Ibatoulline's illustrations are all about the contrast between warmer, golden interiors and the cold purplish blue of winter's twilight. Frances acts in a way that lets her feel joy from within.
—Chicago Tribune

Newbery medalist Kate DiCamillo’s heart-warming prose is gorgeously complimented by Bagram Ibatoulline’s inspiring illustrations…overlaid with a hazy glow of wonder.
—National Center for the Study of Children’s Literature

The fabulous duo of DiCamillo and Ibatoulline, who gave us the beautiful Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane last year, has teamed up for a picture book that could become a holiday classic.
—Kansas City Star

It's a simple story with a simple ending, but it focuses on what the season is supposed to be about: giving to others and opening up your heart.
—Louisville Courier-Journal

A gorgeous volume with illustrations by Bagram Ibatoulline, Great Joy is about the difference between marking Christmas and understanding its meaning.
—Miami Herald

There's genuine warmth to the satisfying Christmas pageant climax, which resonates like a favorite carol — the kind that makes you cry.
—Minneapolis Star Tribune

The atmospheric art contrasts the chill of the weather and warm glow of the climactic welcoming celebration.
—San Francisco Chronicle

The best yule book of 2007…would revive anyone's Christmas spirit after a day spent enveloped in a swirl of mall Muzak and shoppers' elbows.
—Tacoma News Tribune

An inspiring story of Christmas kindness…Luminous paintings capture the story's depth and light.
—Grand Rapids Press

[A] touching story of good will toward all…Bagram Ibatoulline's subtle illustrations convey the true spirit of the season.
—Literary Features Syndicate

Spare, loving prose and luminous acrylic illustrations make each full-page spread a heartfelt joy. Read this giving tale aloud to your loved ones this season.
—Copley News Service

Unparalleled in its simplicity of words and its ethereal illustrations.
—The Asheville Citizen-Times

This magnificently illustrated, heartwarming book is a different kind of holiday tale, one that addresses the true meaning of Christmas.
—Catholic Online

Luminous illustrations by Bagram Ibatoulline accentuate the power of random acts of kindness.
—Charlotte Parent

A beautiful book from a very special storyteller. You’ll want to add this to your family’s collection.
—Parentclick.com

Heart-warming prose is gorgeously complemented by…inspiring illustrations…overlaid with a hazy glow of wonder.
