This Christmas collection includes such series favorites as Tacky the penguin and Lyle the crocodile as well as classics like Jessie Willcox Smith's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. The content makes it well-suited for holiday storytimes (though the large, square format standardizes the tales' layouts, to the detriment of some). Interspersed between the stories are carols from H. A. Rey's Curious George Christmas Carols.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's new Christmas-themed collection includes series-book favorites such as Tacky the penguin, Lyle the crocodile, and Ollie the duckling as well as classics such as the Jessie Willcox Smith illustrated version of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. Though the volume's content makes it well-suited for cozy family holiday storytimes, the large, square format unfortunately standardizes the layouts of these eight reprinted tales, to the detriment of some of them. Interspersed between the stories are eight songs beautifully illustrated by H. A. Rey from the book Curious George Christmas Carols. A bonus CD of holiday music rounds out this gift anthology. cynthia k. ritte Copyright 2013 Horn Book Magazine.

PreS-Gr 2—There's something for everybody in this festive volume. It is filled with holiday-themed stories about classic picture-book characters, interspersed with well-known Christmas carols charmingly illustrated by H. A. Rey. Curious George, Tacky the penguin, Lyle Crocodile, Ollie the duckling, Fireman Small, and Strega Nona are here, along with a reprint of the 1912 version of Clement C. Moore's "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith. A CD of holiday music is also included. This is a handsome collection that will be appreciated by busy families looking for a lot of holiday cheer all in one place.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
