HERE IN A LIVELY TEXT and breathtakingly beautiful pictures is the story of the Brackett children and their exciting Maine woods Christmas. It is also a tale of true neighborliness and friendship brought close to boys and girls by a beloved writer and a great artist.

After their own house burned down, Lucy Brackett's parents could afford only a temporary forest camp. Her four brothers thought living in the woods was perfect — there were animals to watch, hills to ski, and a thousand fascinating things to do. Lucy had fun, too, but she was afraid there would never be money for a new house or for her brothers' Christmas. To help out she did the only thing she could think of — and it had results more wonderful than she could have dreamed.

John O'Hara Cosgrave II's stunning watercolor pictures add beauty and a "down East" atmosphere to a thoroughly satisfying story. Together they make this a memorable portrayal of life and fun in the Maine woods.
