Steve Light is the author-illustrator of many books for children, including The Christmas Giant. He lives in New York City.
The combination of a strong-willed girl and imaginative art that
soars makes this one a worthy choice.
--School Library Journal
--Kirkus Reviews Light (The Christmas Giant) taps into the allure of flying, the charm of old gadgets, and the joy of secret spaces in his lighter-than-air fantasy.
--Publishers Weekly Mr. Light's swishy, zoomy illustrations give lift to this cheerful adventure that ends, as adventures should, with warm reconciliation and a plate of hot pancakes.
--Wall Street Journal Imagination takes wing in this picture book about a young girl who dreams of flying...The colored pencil illustrations are imaginative and offer enough detail to keep the reader's interest, which makes this a good read-aloud.
