Snowy, tinsely illustrations by Richard Scarry liberally touched with gilt spill into the frivolous, lighthearted stories and poems. All the fixin's here without substance-sugary and easily forgotten. These are stories about animals and how they celebrate the glad season; bears, tigers, mice, cats etc. (attired informally in civies) -- from the weentsy to the woly-poly. Too sweet for our taste. A dependable S&S Christmas market for this one.
