Howarth (Jingle Bells) takes children on an alphabetical tour of Christmas through vintage-looking graphics that hark back to the work of Mary Blair and her contemporaries. The alliterative rhymes are well-constructed, though Howarth sometimes stretches to create holiday connections: Angel singing sweet and clear./ Bunny biking far and near (Howarths rabbit is dressed warmly for winter, and its bicycle has peppermint candy wheels, but still). Regardless, her handsome and boldly colored images of retro Christmas tree ornaments, an elf riding a reindeer rocking chair, a trim ice-skating Santa, and other recognizable holiday elements should please kids and design-minded parents alike. Up to age 3. Agent: Jennifer Nelson, Jennifer Nelson Artists. (Sept.)
