"A helpful cow uses hilarious stalling techniques to entertain a boy... on Christmas Eve while Santa Claus flies back to the North Pole for more presents... Cozy illustrations depict a beautifully decorated tree, stockings by the fireplace, snow-covered rooftops, and glistening front yards. VERDICT With an offbeat pairing of a bespectacled boy and a well-intentioned cow, this holiday picture book is perfect for read-alouds." --School Library Journal
