Santa's Cookie Is Missing

Santa's Cookie Is Missing. Illustrated by Anne Passchier. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 2019. 16 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: We always share cookies on Christmas Eve and save one for Santa with a tall glass of milk.

Premise/plot: This is a novelty board book. It features die-cut pages—circle-shaped, of course. Sant’s cookie goes missing!!! Can young ones solve the mystery and discover what happened to his cookie?

My thoughts: I liked this one. I didn’t love, love, love it. It is a novelty treat and not great literature. It is a book probably worth sharing with little ones during the holidays. But probably not destined to become a classic.

The illustrations are the best part, in my opinion.
