About the Book

Overview

It's Christmas Eve, and up high on a mesa Old Armadillo calls "Merry Christmas!" But no one is there. He checks his letter basket but finds no Christmas cards. Believing his friends have forgotten him, he shuffles into his casita and falls asleep. But his friends haven't forsaken him. Roadrunner, Coyote, Bear, and other friends arrive to secretly decorate Old Armadillo's house. When Old Armadillo opens his door, he discovers a beautiful Christmas surprise. Larry Dane Brimner's quiet and comforting story, warmly illustrated by Dominic Catalano, is the perfect choice for little ones at Christmastime.

Reviews

"Catalano's illustrations are carefully executed. With the soft look of pastels, they'll grab kids with their colors and their ample details." Booklist
