HARK! THE AARDVARK ANGELS SING: A Story of Christmas Mail

Teri Sloat, Author, Teri Sloat, Illustrator . Putnam $15.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-399-23371-5

Set to the rollicking beat of the classic carol, this sublimely silly tale salutes a band of unconventional mail carriers around the world. From the desert ("Safely leading caravans,/ Guiding mail through blinding sands") to the bayou ("Hark! The aardvark angels glide/ Through the swamps where gators hide"), the intrepid winged helpers never miss a beat, nor do the playful rhymes. Bright watercolor crayon and acrylic illustrations brim with droll detail; canceled postage stamps in the margins add to the global glee. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
