The Christmas Eve Tree by Delia Huddy - ESSENTIAL

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.
