Santoro, Scott Candy Cane Lane. Simon & Schuster, 2016. $18.
On Candy Cane Lane, every house is overly decorated with a riot of lights, figures, and ornaments – except for the little house on the corner where a little girl lives with a father who is just making ends meet. After a big storm however, the girl tries to save a choir boy figure and on her journey she meets a houseful of rejected Christmas decorations which she decides to take home for her own beautiful Christmas display.
I am overjoyed at the great selection of Christmas books this year! Candy Cane Lane’s sweet message will not disappoint! There’s enough here for a new holiday movie classic!
