Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“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
