What could be tastier for Christmas dinner than a fresh roast? A little goat trapped in the snow looks to be a prime candidate for a struggling family's holiday meal—but neither parents nor children have the heart to take the life of the fluffy, friendly creature. Before long, the snowy white goat, now named Pashmina, returns their Christmas kindness with the gift of luxurious wool from her coat. This tale and its accompanying airy, pastoral scenes warm like a pair of mohair mittens. Ages 4-up. (Sept.)
