Priscilla and the Great Santa Search

By Nathaniel Hobbie (Trade Paperback, 2010)
When Priscilla and her best friend Bettina eagerly join the other holiday shoppers to see Santa at the mall, they realize they are looking at not one, but several fake Santas! The girls decide there's only one thing to do: Head to the North Pole to find the real Santa Claus.

With an artistic style reminiscent of Dr. Seuss and Hilary Knight, Priscilla and the Great Santa Search captures the magic of Christmastime and every child's fascination with the one and only Santa Claus. Best of all, this new paperback edition features a redesigned cover with sparkling red foil, offering a gifty feel to this classic story.

    Priscilla and the Pink Planet
    - "[the] exuberant ink-and-watercolor [illustrations] combine a giddy abundance of detail with a stylish editorial sensibility. [Jocelyn] seems to be channeling a bit of Dr. Seuss touched with Hilary Knight." - PW

    - "Priscilla has her own individualistic charm and the Great Queen of Pink is a force to be reckoned with." - Kirkus

    - "This is an entertaining book, and the engaging cartoon illustrations are filled with interesting details... a bouncy read-aloud." - SLJ 

    Priscilla: Superstar!
    - "The bouncy rhymes move along quickly... Priscilla's enthusiasm for life and her zest for becoming a star are conveyed through both the text and the candy-colored cartoons." - SLJ

    - "Priscilla is charming, and her expressive essence is fully captured in witty, cartoonlike watercolor-and-ink artwork, embellished with glitzy frills [and] bouncy, read-aloud-friendly rhymes... [an] entertaining, upbeat story." - Booklist
