Curato, Mike

Merry Christmas, Little Elliot

(2) PS In Little Elliot's (Little Elliot, Big City etc.) latest heartwarming adventure, the polka-dotted elephant isn't feeling the Christmas spirit; his attempts, with friend Mouse, to find holiday cheer fall short. But discovering a girl's letter to Santa finally leads to a merry Christmas for everyone. Curato's nostalgic pencil and digital illustrations work well, enlisting the yesteryear setting and New York City's classic seasonal activities to amplify the story's sentiments.
