Family one: exquisite pastries, a beautifully trimmed tree, and festive cello music.
Family two: an artificial tree, rock hard candy, and custom kazoo carols.

"...tasteful and tacky go head-to-head in “The Perfect Christmas,” a lighthearted study in contrasting holiday styles."--NYTimes.com “…the jolly collage art ties it all together, depicting each family’s traditions with finesse.” --Horn Book Magazine “This is a cheerful, funny, and respectful portrayal of two very different families and their holiday celebrations.” --School Library Journal
