Lachie MacLachlan, the generous hero of this enchanting tale, is the exception to the rule that the Scots are a thrifty lot. In his "wee house in the heather," where he lives with his family of twelve, he welcomes to his hearth every weary traveler who passes by on a stormy night. "There's always room for one more," says Lachie, and how his grateful guests say a wonderful "Thank you" provides a delightfully warm and tender ending to this hilarious tale of kindness.
Always Room for One More is the winner of the 1966 Caldecott Medal.

Praise for Always Room for One More
“Lachie MacLachlan...generously extends a welcome to all who pass by. Soon, a tinker, a tailor, a sailor, a lassie, an 'auld' wife, a bagpiper, and others join him, until the jubilant dancing and singing literally bring the house down....With the help of his guests, [Lachie] builds a bigger house, where there is 'always room for one more.'” —Book Links
