Find out how everyone at the North Pole says good night!
Everyone needs to go to bed on Christmas Eve--even at the North Pole!
If you were a snowman with a long carrot nose,
Coal for your eyes and a scarf for your clothes,
In your bed that's zero degrees Fahrenheit,
How would you wish your frosty papa good night?
In this companion to Halloween Good Night, Doug Cushman introduces a wide array of North Pole inhabitants that are sure to entrance children who are anticipating the much-loved holiday. In this joy-filled holiday romp, find out how polar bears, gingerbread men, elves, toys—even Santa—help their little ones settle down on an exciting night.
In this charmingly loopy tale set in a cramped 19th-century tenement, Ma sends Pa to the market to buy eggs and flour ( Christmas is not far off, and we must save every penny ). He returns, however, with a scrawny turkey, vowing to fatten it up for Christmas, proclaiming, Think of the money we ll save! The bird eats everything in sight, wreaks havoc in their apartment, and annoys the neighbors, but when it s time to bring him to the butcher, the children protest. Creating a strong sense of the historical setting, Cole s (Good Enough to Eat) wispy pictures play off the ample comedy in the prose, making for a holiday story as humorous as it is touching. Ages 4 up.
