Sattler, Jennifer A Chick ‘n’ Pug Christmas Bloomsbury, 2014. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
Pug and his friend Chick are best of friends. Pug has an outfit like Santa’s and it spurs Chick to ask a lot of questions about Santa. Chick wants to be one of Santa’s elves, so he decides to go around and help people and leave them gifts.
The illustrations in this book are adorable! The format of the story is disappointing because Pug just acts like a narrator and isn’t really involved in the story and Chick is running around like a crazy bird--making the story fall flat. There are cuter Christmas books out there.
