A Little Fruitcake:A Childhood in Holidays by David Valdes Greenwood.


Book Description
A hilarious, delectable stocking stuffer of Christmas stories for the holiday lover in the family.

The annual fruitcake symbolizes all that is wonderful about the holidays (goodwill, tradition, colorful treats) and all that makes them maddening (strange foods, crazy relatives, and those darned candied fruits). Here in twelve stories--one each for the twelve days of Christmas--David Valdes Greenwood elfishly captures the spirit of the holiday and the outrageous unpredictability of family celebrations. Gather around the tree for tales of a God-fearing Grammy assembling candy tins as fast as she can; daredevil brothers roof-jumping into snow drifts--and Nixon's role in it all; a Christmas pageant with warring wise men and one wiser woman; and the winter night that Valdes Greenwood discovers the true gift of the season.

A perfect holiday confection, A Little Fruitcake is sure to find its place for years to come alongside other Christmas classics.
