When an orphan chimney sweep named Nicholas is unexpectedly given a red coat and a snow globe by a kind-hearted customer, he thanks the man, but is told simply to "pass it on." This Nicholas does, years later, returning to the chimneys of his youth once again—but this time with gifts. High's (The Christmas Star) thoughtful story is enhanced with Lithuanian artist Kasparavicius's muted watercolors, whose many details—from leaded glass windows to steepled rooftops—lend an old-world flavor. Ages 6-up. (Sept.)
