    The night before Christmas and all through the farm, not a creature is stirring, not even a...duck?

    "This is a Christmas story that has it all: beloved characters, physical humor, and an original idea, as well as a short, funny text that effectively uses repeated phrases. Lewin's loose watercolor illustrations with bold outlines are cozy in the interior scenes and magical in the outdoor settings, with midnight blue skies, dots of white snow, and a hazy full moon that shows off Santa and his reindeer. An endearing story that will appeal to a wide age range, including preschoolers, new readers, and older kids who love the Click Clack crowd." - Kirkus Review (Starred Review)
