Four animal friends--Bird, Rabbit, Deer, and Squirrel--deliver a package for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Publisher Description

In this charming Christmas-themed picture book that feels like a classic, four animals deliver a lost package for Santa.

It's Christmas Eve, and Bird, Rabbit, Deer, and Squirrel are eagerly waiting for Santa to fly overhead. When he does, a gift tumbles out of his sleigh, landing in the woods. The friends find the gift and read the tag- "For the new baby at the farm. Love, Santa." And so, in spite of Squirrel's grumbling-"It's not our baby"-they set off on a long journey to deliver it. Sweet, poignant, and starring a cast of truly adorable characters, this is a story sure to be shared year after year at Christmastime.

Review

PRAISE FOR The Lost Gift "Graegin (How to Share with a Bear) creates sweeping expanses of moonlit snow for the animals to traverse under midnight blue Christmas Eve skies, creating an atmosphere of quiet magic as the animals discover the rewards of doing a kind deed." --Publishers Weekly

"The little animals are a charming group, each displaying a specific personality trait that contributes to the group's dynamics. Captivating illustrations use pencil-and-ink washes to create a delicate atmosphere of snow-covered trees, midnight-blue skies, and shadows in snowy fields. A delightful, quiet story with a subtle theme of giving to others as a gift in itself." --Kirkus Reviews

"Listeners and readers will empathize with the characters' emotions, captured in friendly, digitally colored pencil-and-ink-wash illustrations. The writing is simple yet expressive. And for those readers hoping to land on the 'nice' list, the story's last line may resonate the most: 'Santa always knows.'" --Horn Book Magazine
