Bloomsbury, 2014. ISBN 9781599906027
Recommended for 2-5 year olds. Christmas is coming and Pug is dressed up in his itchy Santa suit, he even looks a little like him with his large tummy. His friend Chick is very excited and bursting with questions about Christmas, who is this special person, what does he do and how does he deliver all the presents in one night? All Pug wants to do is nap in the snowy backyard. Chick is taken with the idea that Santa is really a superhero, he really wants to be his helper - an elf. They decide to help some friends, sharing Christmas cheer with Mr. Snuggles, The Dude and an ordinary citizen.
Jennifer Sattler's new picture book celebrates the wonder and spirit of Christmas, her familiar characters Chick and Pug are a quirky duo. Her illustrations are bold and vibrant, the young reader is drawn in to the excitement as the illustrations bring the story to life - poor Mr. Snuggles wrapped up in Christmas bells.
