Mercer Mayer's very popular character stars in a getting-ready-for-Christmas picture book. Little Critter approaches Christmas with the intention of being a good helper. When he makes a mistake, he has a logical explanation. He couldn't wrap the Christmas package because the tape got too sticky. He couldn't buy his parents a present because there were too many toys to look at. He couldn't put up the tree lights because they were just too tangled. Little Critter means well, but every funny illustration shows him as tangled up as the Christmas lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Christmas Story A fun book to read for the holidays!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic in Our Home This story is a great read for little ones. It is a bit heavy on the gift giving aspect of christmas, so i would recommend balancing it with a book about the spirit of giving as opposed to always giving things!
