Zoomer’s Out-of-This-World Christmas by Ned Young - ADVISABLE

Young, Ned Zoomer’s Out-of-This-World Christmas.  PICTURE BOOK.  Harper, 2013.  $18.  Content: G.  

The pups Hooper, Cooper and Zoomer are excitedly awaiting Santa’s arrival when the spaceship lands in their backyard instead.  The pups have a great time with the alien family, but when it comes time to leave, Zoomer realizes that he will have to give up a treasured possession in order to repair the spaceship.  

This book would have been just as adorable without any references to Santa or Christmas.  The illustrations are delights for the eye.  I would love a whole line of Young’s aliens as toys, personally!
