White Christmas

Irving Berlin, illus. by Michael Hague, Harper, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-029123-5
Hague's distinctive and beguiling interpretation of Berlin's beloved song eschews Coca-Cola Santas, gingerbread men, and modern kiddies for a Nordic fairy tale wonderland of elves, sprites, and shaggy goats and polar bears. A 20-something woman shakes a snow globe, awakening a world within: rainbows arch over frozen waterfalls, Lokiesque tricksters pop up, a Father Christmas–style Santa makes the rounds, and icicles hang from every surface. Includes sheet music for fireside sing-alongs. All ages. (Oct.)
