AllMusic Review by

Troy Townsin, the author of a trio of Christmas-themed children's books, A Moose in a Maple Tree, The Night Before a Canadian Christmas, and Canadian Jingle Bells, conceived of this project as a musical accompaniment to his books. Using all Canadian artists and working across the pop music spectrum, from hip-hop to ska, the album scores a perfect hat trick by being, all at once, a charming representation of Townsin's books, a nice stage for several interesting Canadian musical artists, and a delightfully refreshing holiday album.
