Overview

The Attic Christmas by B.G. Hennessy, Dan Andreasen

When Angel, Mr. Macaroni, Silver Bell, Skier, Special Delivery, Santa, and Camel find themselves stuck in the attic one year, they realize something is wrong. Lily always hangs them on the tree for her grandchildren, but now her house seems empty. The ornaments try to cobble together the things they already possess so they can have their own Christmas. But it's not until they hear footsteps that they know Christmas has finally arrived. It's Jack, Lily's son, coming to find them for his kids and to continue the tradition his mother put into place so many years before. The popular family tradition of collecting treasured Christmas ornaments is celebrated as never before in a heartwarming story with jewel-like illustrations.

The illustrations are warm, rich and evocative of a time not so long ago. For adults the story line is sentimental & predictable its value is in presenting to children that while loss of a loved one may be sad there is comfort and joy in keeping traditions and fond memories of those not with us any longer.
