Christmas is a time for gift giving, and remembering old friends. But this Christmas it seems there are no gifts for Old Armadillo and no friends to remember him. "Merry Christmas!" he calls from the front door of his casita. But no one is there to hear. He checks his letter basket. But no one has sent him a Christmas card. Saddened, he shuffles back inside and falls asleep, believing his friends have forgotten him. Meanwhile, something wonderful is happening outside his casita. Roadrunner,Coyote, Raccoon, Bear, and others are secretly preparing a big Christmas surprise for their friend. Old Armadillo awakes to find the joy of Christmas as he realizes that his friends have remembered him after all. Larry Dane Brimner's loving story is filled with holiday cheer, and warmly illustrated by Dominic Catalano. Together, author and illustrator have created a picture book that will gladden the hearts of little ones each and every Christmas.
