Publisher's Weekly Review

Muldrow, editorial director of Golden Books, returns with a second witty compilation of wisdom inspired by the beloved line of children's books. In contrast to the vintage artwork-from Mary Blair, Richard Scarry, Eloise Wilkin, and more-the narrative voice is off-the-cuff and modern, moving from a position of exhaustion ("All that baking, the endless cycle of cooking and cleaning") to one that appreciates the traditions and merriment of Christmas ("So deck the halls! Deck yourselves!"). Muldrow cleverly repurposes illustrations from holiday and non-holiday titles alike to create a book that will resonate with readers young and old. Ages 12-up.
