Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 1–On December 24th, Nicholas Duck rushes out to find Santa to tell him what he wants for Christmas and is surprised to find a red coat and a genuine, official Santa hat on his doorstep. He happily puts them on, but is overwhelmed when all of the animals he meets corner him and rattle off their wish lists. Nicholas tries to get away and runs into Santa, at last. He relays the animals' requests, forgetting to ask anything for himself, but later realizes that helping to give to others has made him happier than getting any gift. Nicholas's silliness and frustration will appeal to youngsters as will the simple message. Milgrim's charming digital ink and oil pastel illustrations use a successful mix of narrative text and cartoon balloons to move the story along at a brisk pace. A fun selection for storytime or one-on-one reading.–Maureen Wade, Los Angeles Public Library

This a cute, quick story to read. I did find it a little choppy, as a lot of characters start talking mid-sentence. And a lot of the text is written in thought-bubble form. A little tricky for a young reader to figure out.
Overall it was cute and I'm happy with the purchase. For the record, this is definitely NOT A JEWISH STORY. Not sure what another reviewer was reviewing, but it wasn't this book.
"That poor little duck, they ask him for so much." O,O
You'd never guess who said that.... O_o
