School Library Journal - 10/01/2016 PreS-Gr 1—Clementine is an ordinary little girl except for one thing—she is so tiny that she bathes in a teacup and sleeps in a matchbox. Unfortunately, Santa doesn't seem to realize this and showers her with regular-size presents that are much too large for her. Finally, she leaves photos for Santa of herself playing with all of her giant presents (dancing on her xylophone, sleeping on the head of her stuffed bird), and Santa gives her the hugest and best gift of all—a dollhouse just her size. There is something delightfully Eloise-like about Clementine's big head, loose-limbed body, and scraggly hair; young children will love watching her prance confidently and joyfully through a world that may be too big for her but seems just right nevertheless. VERDICT This refreshingly playful Christmas tale makes a fun read-aloud choice.—Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
