Every Christmas, Granny’s house is full of family and festive cheer—carols and presents, and plenty of food, bows, and gift wrap for Fat Cat to play with, and lots of company for Granny and her dog, Edgar. When snow starts to fall, the family doesn’t mind at all. Because even during a blizzard, there’s no place better than Granny’s house for Christmas.

Praise for A Houseful of Christmas

“It’s the more the merrier when a boisterous clan makes its annual descent on Granny’s house in Joosse’s animated and knowing story. Lewin’s sweet and humorous artwork rises to the cheerful occasion.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“The clutter, chaos, affection, and fun of these once-a-year activities burst into life in Lewin’s funny and tender pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. Written with economy and an ear for large-family dynamics, A Houseful of Christmas makes a perfect, cozy read-aloud.”—School Library Journal

“So many books try to convey the spirit of the holiday; this one succeeds by stressing one word: family.”—Booklist
