SNOWY MAGIC; ANGEL'S CHRISTMAS COOKIES
Sam Williams, . . HarperFestival, $9.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-06-029651-3
This pair of mild paper-over-board holiday adventures aimed at the preschool set stars Angel and Elf, a fetching duo in green and red footie jammies. In the first, they decide to "magic" some snow with Angel's wand, but the results are a little more than they bargained for (fortunately, Santa steps in to save the day). In the second, a "huge baby snowbear" makes off with the holiday goodies and it's up to the brave pair to get them back. Softly shaded watercolors enhance the sweetness of this winsome twosome and their antics. Ages 4-8.
