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? Everyone needs to go to bed on Christmas Eve—even at the North Pole! 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.
Doug Cushman is the author and illustrator of Halloween Good Night, Dirk Bones, and the Aunt Eater mystery series, and has illustrated over one hundred books, including the New York Times bestseller What Dads Can’t Do. He lives in Paris. [www.doug-cushman.com]
“…when readers spot her [the girl’s] pointy elf ears, they’ll turn right back to the beginning to see how Cushman’s clever, colorful illustrations disguised her as a human girl.” --Horn Book Magazine “Cushman’s bold, cartoonlike graphics have charm that will work well in storytime…” --School Library Journal "...a colorful, simple, comforting offering, with all of the right touches to become a bedtime standby." --Booklist
“This deliciously clever bedtime story offers bouncy rhymes with rich vocabulary, a cast of appealing parent-child pairs and a satisfying ending as Santa takes off with his sleigh and his traditional 'to all a good night'" --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
