Publisher: Viking

Next-door neighbors Turtle and Snake (Turtle and Snake at Work, 1999, etc.) bundle up to go shopping for a tree—but as one (guess which) likes tall, skinny ones, and the other prefers them short and wide, the two leave the tree farm empty-handed (figuratively speaking). Brand new readers will slide through the short sentences here as easily as Turtle, Snake, and a host of winter frolickers slip down snow-covered slopes in Spohn’s simply drawn scenes. And the good fellowship positively radiates after Turtle and Snake at last find the perfect tree—growing between their houses—and invite everyone to a grand trimming party beneath the stars. A pleasant holiday confection, frosted with humorous touches. (Easy reader. 6-8)
