Praise for The Christmas Boot

Winner of the Golden Kite Award for Picture Book Text

“[A] folksy fable about deprivation, abundance, and the spirit of Christmas. . . . As always, Pinkney’s soft, colorful watercolors find deep beauty and interest in simple things.” —The New York Times Book Review

* “Pinkney enhances the strong text with his delightful watercolor illustrations filled with homey details and swirling snowflakes. . . . A winner of a story with enchanting illustrations by a master.” —Kirkus, starred review

* “Gently told and exquisitely illustrated, this holiday jewel centers on Hannah Greyweather, a poor woman who lives in a ‘ramshackle cabin’ and finds a boot in the snow. . . . Pinkney’s meticulously detailed art exudes old-world charm and is a splendid match for Wheeler’s tender tale about taking only what one needs.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The story’s warm folktale feel is heightened by the Caledcott medalist Pinkney’s glowing art, alive with details and overflowing with ambiance. . . . Here is a holiday book that provides something to talk about as well as look at.”—Booklist
