This not your parents Goldilocks story. It has a Halloween/scary twist with the beloved items still all there: too hot alpha-bat stew; hard beds, soft chairs and one sleepy ghoul. But this time, things do not end as you think they will. Our Family of Monsters will have you recalling The Munsters with their multi-monster family (one Frankenstein Dad, one Mummy Mommy, one little ankle-biter baby and one lonely little Zombie Girl). ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

A fresh, clever telling of how Santa and eight reindeer came into a special partnership. There is an old-school classic feel to the text and the beautiful artwork, rich in colors and detail, helps move the story along. These frame-worthy paintings bring to life a story of how eight reindeer helped Santa save Christmas (and why Dasher comes first in the poem). ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
