Overview
The Night Before Christmas meets Thumbelina in a toy-filled tale that celebrates the excitement and magic of the holiday season.

Clementine is a teeny-tiny girl who lives with her average-sized family. It's mostly fun being the smallest, but Christmas can be tricky. Santa brings beautiful toys, but they are too big for this little girl.

Every year, Clementine tries to tell Santa she's small. But the cookies she ices with a message to Santa are eaten, and the words she stamps out on the roof are covered by fresh snow. It'll take a whole lot of Christmas spirit for Clementine to find the right way to reach Santa--and when she does, she just might get the toy of her dreams

Harriet Muncaster's whimsical illustrations shine in this celebration of creativity, gratitude, and the magic of Christmas.

Essentially a modern-day Thumbelina, Clementine sleeps in a matchbox, bathes in a teacup, and fits neatly in the palm of her mothers hand. Unfortunately, Santa doesnt realize that she isnt an average-sized girl: her presents, including a puppy and a paint set, are always much bigger than she is. This year, to clue Santa in, Clementine and her family leave photographs of her with her previous Christmas giftssuch as using xylophone mallets as stilts and balancing on her puppys nose. Finally, Santa gets it right, giving Clementine a dollhouse thats just her size. At the heart of Muncasters story is a subtle message about gently but firmly letting ones needs be known, but many readers will be happy just to pore over the delightful images of Clementine making the most of a very large world. Ages 35. Agent: Jodie Hodges, United Agents. (Oct.)
