“She heard the rustle of tissue paper, the whisper of snow, and the twinkle of bells. She smelled the sharp tangy smell of candles, and nuts and apples. And she saw the sparkling gold, silver, and blue lights on the tree. This, to Pussycat, was Christmas Eve.”
“Quiet, captivating text…precise, beautiful watercolor illustrations…a lovely story with lots of child appeal.” —School Library Journal
