Praise for Clementine for Christmas:

A warm story that emphasizes friendship, compassion, and generosity -- the hallmarks of the holiday... The realistic family dynamics, focus on positive strength, and unwavering affection of a very special pup make this tale worthy of a curtain call. -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for Daphne Benedis-Grab's The Angel Tree:
Full of the type of warmth and good cheer found in favorite holiday movies... Benedis-Grab's lively tale spotlights the time-honored tradition -- and can-do citizens -- that make a small town great... As the kids puzzle through clues, they discover things that bring them closer to their families, neighbors, and each other -- all in time for a satisfying, celebratory reveal. -- Publishers Weekly

The Rockwellian-with-issues setting enhances the cozy small-town feel... Part mystery and part holiday high jinks, this will be a little gift to readers who enjoyed Dean Pitchford's Nickel Bay -- Booklist

This quick tale of generosity is as warm and simple as a Christmas postcard. -- Kirkus Reviews

A satisfying read on many levels -- misunderstandings are resolved, lessons are learned, friendships evolve, and positive behavior is rewarded. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy. -- School Library Journal
