Children's LiteratureHarry and Emily are both so excited about Christmas. After much deliberation about which is the perfect tree, one is finally chosen. They will take the tree to their grandparents' house and decorate it there on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, their plans are disrupted by a blizzard—it isn't safe to travel. Harry and Emily are disappointed—no tree, no presents, no singing carols or baking cookies. They try to play outside, but it is too cold. Finally, they decide to decorate their own tree outside—the siblings string popcorn and cranberries for a "crunchy, munchy" tree. The snowplow arrives and the car is packed for the trip to the grandparents' house, but as they are leaving, Harry and Emily see that someone else enjoys their crunchy, munchy tree—the deer are eating the cranberries. Harry and Emily are anthropomorphic cats in the simple illustrations. A Holiday House Reader Level 2 book. 2003, Holiday House, Ages 6 to 8.
