Just Right for Christmas

Birdie Black, illus. by Rosalind Beardshaw. Candlewick/Nosy Crow, $15.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-7636-6174-8
Cloth “so red and soft and Christmassy!” is the canvas for many holiday gifts in this warm and satisfying tale, reminiscent of the classic Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree. A king first purchases the luxurious cloth at market so his sewing maids can craft a cloak for his daughter. The leftover scraps are placed outside the back door, where the kitchen maid happens on them and makes a jacket for her mother. The subsequent fabric surpluses are passed along, becoming a hat for a badger, gloves for a squirrel, and a tiny mouse scarf in time for Christmas. Beardshaw’s mixed-media art depicts snowy, friendly scenes of camaraderie and generosity. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)
