2011 Award
The Flying Canoe
( retold by Eric A. Kimmel/ illus. by Daniel and Jus, Holiday House $16.95 Score: )

A mysterious French Canadian folktale about six fur traders far from home on Christmas Eve. A stranger comes to their camp and offers them a chance to go home for the holiday if they can travel there in silence. The images of the six men in a flying canoe give this holiday tale a very different look from the usual Santa and his sleigh. In the end the men get the better of the bargain they have made. It's a bit strange--though oddly haunting.
