Waiting for Santa

Waiting for Santa. Steve Metzger. Illustrated by Alison Edgson. 2015. Tiger Tales. 32 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Bear woke early with a tingle in his tummy. "Wake up, everybody!" he called. "Tomorrow's Christmas! We've got to get ready for Santa Claus!"

Premise/plot: Who is waiting for Santa? A lot of animals are waiting for Santa. Perhaps the most enthusiastic being, of course, the cute, adorable bear. One animal, however, is not a believer. Badger. Badger tries to tell Bear, Mouse, Mole, and Hedgehog that they are wasting their time waiting for Santa, preparing for Santa, decorating for Santa. But Bear keeps everyone believing. Will he be rewarded for his faith?

My thoughts: Honestly, I love, love, love the illustrations by Alison Edgson. I do. The Hedgehog, Bear, and Badger are just oh-so-adorable and really all the characters are nicely done. The story itself, however, didn't wow me. It was okay. It was nice enough.
