Description

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.
