The Lost Christmas by -b.b.  cronin; illustrations. by the author
Primary Viking 40pp. g

10/18 978-0-451-47904-4 $18.99

 

In this tricky seek-and-find book, Grandad enlists help from his two grandpups

(and rearers) in tracking down some missing decorations for the tree on Christmas Eve.

Acrylic illustrations show the young ones scouring the messy house (inside and out) for a

variety of glass blown-looking ornamnets.

After finding all the ornaments and decorating the tree, the dogs enjoy their handiwork along

with cake and warm drinks, while readers-if they've looked closly enough

to spot one last challenge on the copyright

pageat the back-can go in search for a second Santa ornament hidden "somewhere in the book."

The book's unusual-for-Christmas bright neon color palette adds an extra visual challenge.
