Praise For…

"Hendrix crafts an intimate fictional account of the event...powerful images."

— Publishers Weekly

"While not shying away from war’s grim realities, the pictures go a long way toward conveying the hopeful light of the German Christmas trees twinkling in the night while the strains of “Stille Nacht” waft across No Man’s Land toward our homesick hero."

— Roger Sutton

"The acrylic and gouache illustrations tell a tale of their own. Not only is this an impressive Christmas story, but it shows the humanity of warring soldiers."

— Jo Drudge, Educational Reviewer, Rome City, Indiana

"Timed with the centenary of World War I but a lesson for always, Hendrix's tale pulls young readers close and shows the human side of war."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Soldier Charlie is affectionately depicted as a freckle-faced youngster among war-worn older men, and his status as a newcomer to battle lends credibility to the combination of playfulness and awe with which he regards the truce."

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
