MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for "The Spirit of Christmas: ""Tillman ("On the Night You Were Born") expertly swirls together reality and fantasy--the narrator's child delights in the sight of the decorated tree, the lion lies down with the lamb--as is fitting for such a magical night."--Shelf-Awareness

"Handsomely illustrated, this Christmas book is bound to be hyped as the perfect seasonal gift. ...Tillman's sentimental sensibility and beautiful artwork ensure that this will become a popular choice at holiday time."--"Booklist"

"A beautiful and timeless book."--"School Library Journal"

"As the adult speaker of the story nods off in a comfy red chair, the Spirit of Christmas appears, ready to get the narrator in the holiday spirit. What follows is a buoyant, imagistic tribute to the season, as the Spirit lists joys both and intangible, before offering the reminder: 'Because it took nothing but love to begin it, / it's not really Christmas if love isn't in it.' Tillman's ethereal illustrations are surreal but captivating."--"Publishers Weekly"

"Bestselling author Tillman offers a dreamlike interpretation of the collective spirit that permeates the holiday."--"Kirkus Reviews"
