Product Details

Praise

Tavares (‘Crossing Niagara’) lets the holiday note waft lightly, bringing equal cheer to the celebration of pair-bonding and New York City.
—The New York Times Book Review

A really engaging visual reading experience – moving from overviews to close ups, vignettes to double page spreads. It’s a very dynamic read – dramatic and tender by turns. My kind of visual storytelling!
—David Wiesner

Tavares (Lighter than Air) captures Red’s frantic search for Lulu, following the truck to New York City…The birds’ reunion is poignant and well earned, and their decision to stay in the city after the holidays poignantly shows how seeming misfortune can lead to unexpected and rewarding opportunities.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Tavares’s realistic watercolor and gouache paintings make the most of dramatic birds’-eye perspectives, while the story provides a child-friendly backstory for an annual NYC holiday attraction.
—The Horn Book

Tavares’s detailed watercolor-and-gouache illustrations expertly capture the seasonal atmosphere…A lovely New York story.
—School Library Journal

…a joyful and affecting picture book written and illustrated by Matt Tavares.
—The Wall Street Journal

With its bird’s-eye views, this wonderfully imagined, gorgeously illustrated ode to the world-famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will have young travelers begging Mom and Dad for a trip to the Big Apple.
—USA Today

Gorgeous artwork, with multiple wordless-pages, advances the tale. Best of all, kids will cheer at the dramatic moment when Red finds Lulu.
—Washington Post

A Christmas book you should probably put on your permanent shelf…This is one of the best of the year.
—Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production

A touching, beautifully illustrated story.
—Kirkus Reviews
