Editorial Reviews

"From its stark opening spread ("MARLEY WAS DEAD") to the final one with its much more cheerful winter scene, this year's version, illustrated in Helquist's darkly comic style, is one of the best. This retelling reads beautifully. winning combination of sparkling prose and exciting art." (School Library Journal (starred review))
