From Publishers Weekly
Rosales's (On the Day I Was Born) rendition of the well-loved Clement C. Moore poem casts a "Santy Claus... with skin like molasses" who directs his reindeer with "Giddy-up y'all!" and lands on the roof of an African American family. Her tweaking of the verses, adding dialect and atmospheric description ("Like tobacco leaves whipped by a hurricane") joins with the art in creating a new setting, a small North Carolina farm at the turn of the century. Despite the frequently exaggerated expressions of human and reindeer figures, the tender oil paintings radiate warmth. Ages 3-8.
