Little Elliot the elephant isn't quite sure what Christmas spirit is, but he suspects he doesn't have it. Not even a visit to Santa Claus can put Elliot in the right mood. But when chance blows a letter for Santa into Elliot and Mouse's path, the two friends discover what Christmas is all about―and make a new friend, too. A heartfelt celebration of the season of giving! Perfect for sharing around the holidays.

Review

"Not-a-word-out-of-place storytelling is enhanced by soft-focus illustrations . . . Young children will have fun trying to spot little Mouse throughout." ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Merry Christmas, Little Elliot

"With elegant scenes that seem lifted from a bygone New York City, Curato again enhances a quiet story about friendship and belonging." ―Publishers Weekly on Merry Christmas, Little Elliot

"Curato's retro illustrations are a highlight" ―Booklist on Merry Christmas, Little Elliot

"A lovely addition to holiday collections" ―School Library Journal on Merry Christmas, Little Elliot

Little Elliot, Big Fun:

"It’s a gorgeous vision of summer in the city, as well as of small steps with big payoffs." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A bravura celebration of the healing effects of acceptance and friendship." ―Booklist, starred review

Little Elliot, Big Family:

“Young children will easily relate to Elliot's experience of loneliness and his relief at inclusion, both convincingly captured in this elegant tale.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Curato fleshes out Little Elliot's personality in this installment―there are glimmers of a character with real depth beneath his cutie-pie visage―while continuing to come up with wonderful, Hopperesque images of a bygone New York.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

Little Elliot, Big City:

“[Curato is] a terrific emerging talent, with gorgeously rendered images that bring to mind the moodiness of Chris Van Allsburg and the sweetness of William Joyce.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Curato, a debut author and illustrator, tucks several gentle messages into one simple story that's perfect for the age group. . . . Happily, expect to see more of him.” ―Booklist, starred review

“A tiny, spotted elephant tackles the challenges of city life. . . . The simple story is told in 17 short sentences that allow Curato's magnificent 1940s-style illustrations to carry the tale.” ―School Library Journal
