The Santa Thief

“The appealing illustrations glow with lamplight and provide many small details that ground this story in a Pennsylvania farmhouse in the 1920s, and Georgie’s dark eyebrows and freckles give him personality. VERDICT A pleasant, if slight, slice-of-life tale.”
School Library Journal

“A delightful take on the theme of a boy and his dog, full of detailed―and frequently funny―images and a valuable message about paying attention to the needs of your neighbors.”
Kirkus Reviews
