Another Helen Ward book illustrated by Wayne Anderson, whose style tends toward the eerie and slightly macabre. A little girl wandering a grey, snowy town on Christmas Eve is looking for the "perfect present to give to someone very special." She finally finds a strange and fascinating toy store, but the customer in front of her is buying up everything in the entire store! I'll leave you to guess who that might be. In any case, she does eventually get the gift she's looking for. Logan found it interesting, but he likes illstrations that are more cutesy and less "arty." He (and I) much prefers Ward's own illustration style.
