"The appealing illustrations glow with lamplight and provide many small details that ground this story in a Pennsylvania farmhouse in the 1920s, and Georgie's dark eyebrows and freckles give him personality. VERDICT A pleasant, if slight, slice-of-life tale." --School Library Journal
"An entertaining story with a plucky main character, a problem-solver rather than a thief." --Kirkus Reviews
"With Christmas right around the corner, Georgie is disheartened to learn that rough times mean Santa may not be able to deliver the ice skates he has been wishing for, in The Santa Thief. Set in small-town Pennsylvania circa 1920, the illustrations from Lauren Gallegos are reminiscent of Norman Rockwell's Depression-era portraits, with snowy woods and cozy robe-clad mornings. Georgie regains his holiday spirit with a touching surprise for his hardworking parents." --Foreword Reviews FIVE STARS
