“[Ruby’s] enthusiasm and generosity are infectious.” —Publishers Weekly
School Library Journal
“Splattered with pink and hearts, the cartoon art is joyful and energetic while the landscapes have a Seuss-like quality. . . . This good-natured story shows what really matters during holidays: spending time with people you love.” —School Library Journal
