This little adventure is well-meaning and ends touchingly but some concepts did not fit for me. Parents assuredly would be proud of a child capable of thinking reciprocally about the world's benefactor and I can imagine them letting him go ahead his plan, if he targeted one. To let him stress over spending money, particularly without knowing where to bestow it while any number of Santa-actors are parading around town, was a stretch too far. This wasn't a child who was eager about coming up with a personalized idea. He thought he needed to buy an exceptionally good gift and I am baffled his parents let him fret over that.
Another detractor for me was an enormously greedy sister. I know her behaviour was emphasized to contrast Arthur's generosity and how she comes through for him at the eleventh hour. However the useless shopping expedition and tacky attitude filled the majority of the book. Arthur's confusion over the eclectic Santas was cute and his gift idea, derived from them. I loved the clear warmth from their Grandma Thora and parents. <b>Marc's</b> drawings are the delightful highlight: colourfully, skilfully-detailed and whimsically so, too! My favourite is the second: the grocery store abounding with amusing sundries!
