Trickster Coyote is having his friends over for a festive solstice get-together in the woods when a little girl comes by unexpectedly. She leads the party-goers through the snowy woods to a shopping mall -- a place they have never seen before.
Coyote gleefully shops with abandon, only to discover that fi lling your shopping cart with goodies is not quite the same thing as actually paying for them. The trickster is tricked and goes back to his cabin in the woods -- somewhat subdued -- though nothing can keep Coyote down for long.
...splendid satirical romp, with an equally splendid profusion of watercolour illustrations by the inimitable Gary Clement... - Globe and Mail
The humor is dry and affectionate, the rhyming text delights with sly turns of phrase, the watercolor cartoons are whimsical...[A] holiday treat... - School Library Journal
This critique of consumerism has the irreverent, biting humour of all King's Coyote stories, a refreshing alternative to sentimental Christmas fare. - Toronto Star
