Illustrations/Photos (if applicable)
The rhyming text makes for a humorous delight as a polar bear and mouse’s ideas of decorating a Christmas tree clash with each other. The author is not afraid of stretching the language to harder words that make for a great vocabulary builder with a grown-up such as what incendiary, defying gravity, and disastrously mean. The pictures are silly and things get worse and worse as their ideas clash and end on a humorous note with the gifts they receive. Overall, this is a humorous book highlighting what can happen when we disagree which is fun even for older children to read.
