Reviews

Eight-year-old Johnny is eager to visit his grandparents in their big stone house in Connecticut. He vividly remembers his last trip there when he was three, and his strongest memory is of a beautiful, hand-carved wooden horse. Johnny tells his little brother, Liam, that this year, it will be his turn to enjoy it-but the horse has vanished. Will wishing be enough to bring it back on Christmas Day? This story of a caring family, skillfully illustrated in gouache and watercolor, warmly and effectively conveys the selfless ideal of the season.
School Library Journal, October 2011
"Nostalgic paintings and narrative, along with these collaborators' (Ghost Ship) hefty fan bases, are likely to make this a solid holiday seller...Minor's gouache and watercolor art, featuring his characteristic exquisite detail, gives the book its magic" - Publisher's Weekly, September 2011
