Christmas in July: The Christmas Whale
|The Christmas Whale by Roger Duvoisin. Alfred A. Knopf, 1945.|
Yes, it's about a whale. At Christmas. For real.
And it's written and illustrated by Roger Duvoisin, who is one of my favourites and my bests.
Look at all that snow. So, what happens if all of the reindeer get sick on Christmas Eve?
Santa asks other animals to help, but in the end, it's the Whale who comes to his rescue.
This book is the best. It's so perfectly weird. I am on the lookout for a lovely (but affordable) copy of my very own. Thank you, interlibrary loan, for finally putting the book in my hands!
