I've been following the O'Hara sisters on Instagram for over a year while I anxiously waited to read this book. I wasn't disappointed when I finally held a copy! The illustrations are simultaneously luminescent and dark, and the story of little Hortense who's afraid of her shadow is endearing.

What could be better than a Christmas-time scavenger hunt in New York City? When Lily's parents leave her and her brother alone for Christmas, she is devastated, and in an effort to cheer her up, her brother encourages her to leave a journal in a book at the Strand, prompting a back and forth scavenger hunt around the city. When Dash, with a Scrooge-like attitude toward Christmas, picks up the journal, it sets off a series of adventures all over the city that makes me laugh and warms my heart every time. I read this one every year, and I promise it will make you Christmas season brighter.
