Categories: Humorous Stories
The holiday season can be stressful, even for a kid. But when one boy makes a wish for a little holiday help, he gets more than he bargained for. And what will Santa do without his elves? Mark Gonyea uses comic-strip styling to great effect in this clever picture book.
Mark Gonyea is the author and illustrator of A Book About Color: A Clear and Simple Guide for Young Artists, A Book About Design: Complicated Doesn’t Make It Good, and Another Book About Design: Complicated Doesn’t Make It Bad. He was born in upstate New York and spent most of his childhood consuming cartoons, video games, and monster movies.
“A limited palette of reds, greens and yellow and simple shapes provide a sharp, contemporary look that will appeal to older children with limited reading skills.” --Kirkus Reviews
