Huddy, Delia The Christmas Eve Tree, illustrated by Emily Sutton. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick, 2016. $17.
The little, stunted fir tree is unsure that anyone will want to take him home. Little does he know the wonderful things that are awaiting him.
I admit – and you should admit it too – I thought this was a rip off of a classic Christmas book. Instead, Huddy takes a whole new look a little trees that have been left behind on Christmas Eve and creates a delightful new tale.
