Christmas Magic: A Changing Picture Book

Kirsten Hall, illus. by Simon Mendez. Sterling, $14.95 (20p) ISBN 978-1-4027-7075-3
In this chunky interactive book, naturalistic paintings transform via pull-tabs, while joyful rhyming verse describes the two images that appear in each picture window. In one scene, children wearing baker’s hats lick bowls filled with “gooey mix.” The picture changes to show the children admiring their gingerbread house: “The scent of nutmeg fills the air,/ Each cookie dressed with love and care.” Elsewhere, children appear shoveling snow, then peering behind a snowman, while in a cozy living room, Santa replaces a lounging cat in an armchair. A charming and visually alluring holiday gift book. Ages 4–7. (Oct.)
