For those of you who celebrate Christmas (or know a child who does), I recommend Christmas Kitten: Home at Last by Robin Pulver, illustrated by Layne Johnson (Albert Whitman, 2010).
Santa and Mrs. Claus must rush to find a home for a foundling kitten named Cookie. Santa would love to keep the kitten, but he's allergic - and there's a little girl out there with the perfect home. Readers familiar with Pulver's Christmas for a Kitten will delight in Cookie's further Christmas Eve adventures.
School Library Journal cheers, "This is a sweet, fun read-aloud for the cat-loving crowd."
Children's Literature cheers, "This delightful Christmas story remains true to the Christmas spirit and also shows a human side to Santa. This book brings good tidings to cat lovers and Christmas story fans."
