Publisher's Weekly Review

A miniature paper-over-board edition of Holly Hobbie's I'll Be Home for Christmas (2001) comes packaged in her Toot & Puddle: Book and Two Dolls Gift Set, along with the two porky characters as plush dolls, dressed in Christmas pajama finery. PW said of the holiday title, "Hobbie's chipper text and alternately cozy and funny watercolors are as winning as ever." (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Another charmer about the anthropomorphized piggies. The peripatetic Toot is trying to return home for Christmas after a family reunion in Scotland. Back in Woodcock Pocket, Puddle delves into the holiday preparations in anticipation of his pal's return. He decorates, signs the cards with his name (leaving a blank for Toot to sign), sets the Christmas Eve dinner table-and waits. Meanwhile, Toot is delayed due to inclement weather, and when he wearily gives up, sitting in a snowbank in the woods, he wishes on the lucky nut Great-Great-Aunt Peg gave to him. He is picked up by a mysterious stranger in a sleigh and dropped off close to home. The drama of two friends trying to be reunited holds strong appeal. The whimsical watercolor illustrations and effective formatting are so attractive that children and caregivers will enjoy snuggling together to share this book.-L. F. (c) Copyright 2010.
