The first Un–Christmas classic from the bestselling team of How Murray Saved Christmas.
When Noelle wakes up every morning, she must put her new pony in the backyard with all of her other ponies and her new bike in the garage with all of her other bikes. It is another normal day in Christmas City, where every day is Christmas except for one–the much anticipated but highly uncelebrated Un–Christmas Day.
Perfect for every child who wishes for more, more, and more, the bestselling collaboration of Mike Reiss and David Catrow give a new meaning to the phrase "a joyous holiday."
Ages 3 – 7

Grade 1-3–Little Noelle is blasé on Christmas morning when she gets numerous presents including a computer and a pony. Her father grumbles at the abundant feast (Turkey with chestnut dressing and mashed potatoes and carrots and peas and five kinds of pie again?). As it turns out, their dissatisfaction is justified, for Noelle and her family live in a town where it is Christmas 364 days a year. They are grateful for the one day when the decorations get packed away, folks can relax and eat TV dinners, mail gets delivered, and children get to go to school–Un-Christmas! Catrow's colorful, zany illustrations perfectly capture the tone for this tongue-in-cheek cautionary tale. Be careful what you wish for, indeed!–Linda Israelson, Los Angeles Public Library
