"Out of bed, sleepyhead " called my mother. "We're going to have to work our tails off to get ready for Christmas tomorrow.""
Serge Bloch, the witty author and illustrator of "Butterflies in My Stomach," "Reach for the Stars," and "You Are What You Eat," brings his readers a touch of happy holiday spirit. Everyone's a little snowed under preparing for Christmas: a storm is brewing, and there's fear Santa might get stuck at the North Pole. But all it takes is a little decking the halls and trimming the tree to have everyone lighting up with joy. Bloch's humor and unique art--which combines photographs and charming line drawings--help make Christmas very merry, indeed.
