KIRKUS REVIEW

 Their first Christmas together, Shirley and Claude's two adoptees are hoping for a visit from ``Sandy Claus''; Bessie has even knitted a Bunyan-size stocking. Sure that Sandy Claus will never make it to Texas, the reluctant Claude (cheered on by Shirley, who concludes each chapter by reiterating the title) puts on his long red underwear and heads for the roof--only to bump into the real article, who takes the size of Bessie's stocking in stride and leaves extra gifts for the family to deliver nearby in the morning. With deft, charmingly funny illustrations and all the comical verve of its predecessors, a winning addition to a much-liked series. (Young reader. 4-8)
