CORGIVILLE CHRISTMAS

Tasha Tudor, Author . Front Street $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-1-932425-00-0

Tudor's corgis (Corgiville Fair) have always been a likeable lot, but this newest book about their adventures may disappoint her fans. Tudor's memories of childhood in the 1920s prompt observations about the animal denizens of Corgiville as they prepare for Christmas. An overall quaintness pervades the proceedings, from the catnip milkshakes enjoyed by the feline Purrer sisters at the Stauffers' apothecary to the tasteful gatherings hosted by the Cardigan Corgwyns of Wales. Sadly, however, Tudor's mostly fuzzy, often blurry paintings seem unfinished, an impression compounded by the hard-to-read, often error-ridden hand-lettering within those illustrations. All ages.
