KIRKUS REVIEW

Taking off on The Night Before Christmas, the Christmas Cookie Sprinkle Snatcher steals the sprinkles from every pantry in town, then flies home ""to snatch forty winks."" Comes the morning--universal dismay: ""The Chief of Police/ says with a sob,/ 'The Christmas Cookie Sprinkle Snatcher's/ pulled this job!/ He's got super power- /He's some kind of mystic--/ I'll never catch him--/ Let's be realistic!'"" But little Nat, following his trail (of dropped cookie sprinkles), shames him into making restitution by sprinkling down sprinks on all the fresh-baked Christmas cookies. The lesson is a little pat, the look a little garish, but the antics (something of a steal from Dr. Seuss) will probably tickle kids even if they irritate some adults.
