The Town That Forgot About Christmas

Susan K. Leigh, Author, David Gordon, Illustrator , illus. by David Gordon. Concordia $14.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-7586-1107-9

No decorations? No presents? No good cheer? Christmas is just an ordinary day in a town where the people have become mean and selfish and forgotten all about Jesus. But everything changes when a merry woodcarver blows in, using his art—a Christmas crèche project—to help the townspeople rediscover the holiday's true meaning. Gordon's (The Three Little Rigs ) polished, animation-flavored illustrations, which gradually change from black-and-white to color, add spark to Leigh's revisiting of Mary Warren's 1968 story. Ages 4-up. (July)
