"Funny and astute, the volume represents five minutes well spent." —Publishers Weekly
In this delightful Christmas picture book, Jack’s substitute teacher, Mr. Clausen, looks a whole lot like Santa Claus—could he really be Santa?
"This blend of princess power, traditional fantasy, and bountiful snow is a win-win(ter) mix." - Kirkus
Jean Reidy is building quite a reputation as an author of picture books for the very young, so it shouldn't be a surprise that editors working to build in this area think of her. That's how her latest deal came about; the esteemed Virginia Duncan of Greenwillow reached out to say Jean had impressed her at a presentation at IRA, and asked if they might brainstorm some ideas together. The result? A two-picture-book deal featuring Specs, a not-so-clear-sighted young owl who explores the world with his friends. We hope Specs captures many hearts and goes on to star in many more books! The first release is slated for summer 2016. Congratulations, Jean!
