A new bike, a computer, roller skates and a pony! What could be more exciting for Christmas? When you've just celebrated Christmas 364 days in a row, how about NOT getting a pony? The latest holiday book by author Mike Reiss and illustrator David Catrow, explores Christmas City in the state of Texmas where Un-Christmas comes but once a year. And what a treat that is! Un-decorating the tree! Taking down the lights! NOT shopping!
Reiss mines all the possible angles of this scenario and provides some fine laughs along the way. Can you guess what chubby man with a sack comes to visit on Un-Christmas.? (We can't tell and spoil the surprise!) Catrow, whose trademark illustration style is fun and funky as always. Ho! Ho! Ho! Fun! Fun! Fun!
