A Season of Gifts by Richard Peck

The return of one of childrens literatures most memorable characters is a gift indeed.The eccentric, forceful, big-hearted Grandma Dowdel is the star of the Newbery Medal winning A Year Down Yonder and Newbery Honor winning A Long Way from Chicago. And it turns out that her story isnt over - not even close. It is now 1958, and a new family has moved in next door to Mrs. Dowdel: a Methodist minister and his wife and kids. Soon Mrs. Dowdel will work her particular brand of charm - or medicine, depending on who youre asking - on all of them: ten-year-old Bob, who is shy on courage in a town full of bullies; his two fascinating sisters; and even Bobs two parents, who are amazed to discover that the last house in town might also be the most vital. As Christmas rolls around, the Barnhart family realizes that theyve found a true home - and a neighbor who gives gifts that will last a lifetime.
