Synopsis

That's Good! That's Bad! On Santa's Journey by Margery Cuyler

On Christmas Eve, Santa sets off to deliver presents to a little boy. But between a snowstorm, an icy roof, and a dusty chimney, things don't go as expected.

Get ready to laugh out loud as Mr. Claus trips on a cat, bumps his head on a table, and rips his pants. There's never a dull moment for this accident-prone Santa. That's bad. No, that's good!

Reviews

Garland's digitally produced illustrations in deep, saturated colors are full of slapstick humor and antics from the bulgy-eyed Santa, complementing the bouncy text full of sound-effect words that beg to be read with melodramatic expression. A good way to get kids to see the silver lining. Kirkus Reviews

The real strength of this book is in the expressive, humorous illustrations with their dynamic composition and perspective. They capture the excitement of Christmas and should carry well at storytime. School Library Journal



About the Author

Margery Cuyler is the author of many books for children, including From Here to There, The Little Dump Truck, the chapter book Weird Wolf, and That's Good! That's Bad! The idea for the first book in the series came from a conversation with her son, Thomas, who asked, Can't bad things change into good things? Ms. Cuyler grew up in the oldest house in Princeton, NJ, and started writing stories as soon as she learned how to write. She now lives in the same house with her husband, sons and two cats.

MICHAEL GARLAND has written and illustrated several picture books, such as The Mouse Before Christmas, and illustrated That's Good! That's Bad! in Washington, DC. He lives with his family in Patterson, New York.
