Horn Book Review

In his fourth book, Llama Llama wonders how it is that despite the hustle bustle of the season, the countdown to Christmas Day moves at a snail's pace. After too much shopping (and waiting) and baking (and waiting), Llama Llama melts down, and Mama Llama gives him a much-needed hug. She tells him that wishing, waiting, wanting things / we forget what this time brings; while presents are nice, the true gift is / we have each other. Dewdney's illustrations convey the hectic atmosphere in such details as spilled eggnog and strings of lights strewn across the floor. Those who grinch about the frustrating pace of the holidays will enjoy this acknowledgment that Christmas can be hard on everyone -- and that a quick snuggle is always a good idea. jennifer m. brabander (c) Copyright 2010.
