Angel and Elf carefully placed the cookies on Christmas Tree's snowy branches. "How do I look?" asked Christmas Tree. "Good enough to eat!" joked Angel and Elf. Angel and Elf brought their friend Christmas Tree a wonderful and very sweet-smelling gift -- Christmas cookies. Little do they know their gift smells so delicious that someone -- a giant someone -- wants to eat it all up! Not only does this giant someone take all of Christmas Tree's cookies but accidentally takes her shiny Christmas star as well! Will Angel and Elf be able to rescue Christmas Tree's star and return it safely before Christmas?

Publisher's Weekly Review

This pair of mild paper-over-board holiday adventures aimed at the preschool set stars Angel and Elf, a fetching duo in green and red footie jammies. In the first, they decide to "magic" some snow with Angel's wand, but the results are a little more than they bargained for (fortunately, Santa steps in to save the day). In the second, a "huge baby snowbear" makes off with the holiday goodies and it's up to the brave pair to get them back. Softly shaded watercolors enhance the sweetness of this winsome twosome and their antics. Ages 4-8. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

School Library Journal Review

PreS-These stories are sugary sweet and too convoluted to sustain the interest of most young children. They feature two best friends, one with wings and one with pointed ears, both of whom look like round-faced toddlers. In the first, Angel and Elf turn burned cookies into decorations for their friend Christmas Tree, but a baby giant snowbear eats them and takes the tree's star. With the help of one of Santa's fastest reindeer and a bit of magic, all ends well. In the second title, Angel "magics" a snowy day for Elf, which brings trouble when too much snow falls; luckily, Santa comes to the rescue. Both plots are extremely thin, and the texts are too wordy for the audience that would be attracted to the cozy illustrations, which are done in a style reminiscent of Helen Oxenbury's work.-E. M.
