“Who needs a singing Christmas tree when there’s a gigantic outdoor tree sparkling with real snow, its height emphasized by a vertical two-page spread… The book’s large, square format gives ample room for cheery, expressive illustrations. A fresh, sweet way to explore the true meaning of Christmas and unexpected encounters.” - Kirkus Reviews on ‘The Christmas Extravaganza Hotel’
