TITLE: A Chick ‘n’ Pug Christmas
AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR: Jennifer Sattler
PUBLISHER: Bloomsbury Publishing, 2014
Pug is ready for the holidays in his extra cute–and extra itchy–Santa suit. Chick wants one just like it . . . until Pug explains how Santa delivers presents to kids everywhere all in one night, and Chick can’t believe his ears. Clearly, Santa Claus is a superhero! And Chick wants to be his fearless sidekick. Spreading holiday cheer is no easy feat, but Chick is ready and willing, even if Pug, of course, would rather nap.
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : I have the greatest admiration for author-illustrators. While my storytelling skills are strong, I am merely a sketch artist with no misconception of my status as a budding “illustrator”. Ms. Sattler’s holiday story is filled with that famous duo, Chick & Pug. Chick is overwhelmed with excitement over the holiday season while all Pug wants is to take another a nap. Teamwork is the word of the day as this dynamic duo spread holiday cheer while they wait for Santa to arrive. A nice addition to any library!
