Do Not Open Until Christmas

A collection of Christmas-themed short stories from critically acclaimed children's author Jean Little. From a young boy settling in with a new family complete with new siblings (and a chipmunk and raccoon!) just in time for Christmas, to a Dickensian story of Barnardo children trying to settle in to a new home after being rescued from the poverty of living on the dangerous streets of 19th century London.

These stories are filled with hope and all of the warm and joyful feelings of the holiday season.

The old adage, 'It's not what's on the table, it's who's at the table,' means more to home cooks as the stuffy, fussy, pretentious dinner party of the past disappears, making way for a new entertaining ideal. People naturally gather together over food; it's a huge part of any celebration, and a means of coming together for more casual daily social interactions.

Gatherings puts the focus on real situations that bring people together, whether the occasion is a birthday or holiday, or just an excuse to reconnect.
