Silent Night

by Sandy Turner

Published by Atheneum, 2001
32 pages
ISBN: 0-689-84156-6

Ages 5 - 8

This hilarious picture story features a contemporary Santa and a yippy dog, the only one who notices the round, red-garbed intruder. While the dog sees Santa, the humans he lives with see only the dog that wuffs, barks, and yaps! His protests are also the only words the author uses to tell this otherwise visual story, but they repeat often as Santa's presence increasingly agitates the dog. Cartoonist Sandy Turner's artwork is primarily black line drawings on a cream-colored background, but the artist has used color sparingly and to dramatic effect, with the bold red of Santa's suit on every page. This highly entertaining picture book for children will be popular with adults as well. CCBC categories: Seasons and Celebrations; Picture Books for Older Children.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
