Ah, the sweet memories of Christmas . Gifts under the tree. Cookies for Santa. And, of course, the annual fruitcake.

For young David Valdes Greenwood, the indomitable "little fruitcake" at the center of these tales, nothing is sweeter than the promise of the holidays. A modern-day Tiny Tim, he holds fast to his ideal of what Christmas should be , despite the huge odds against him: Sub-zero Maine winters. A host of eccentric relatives. And his constant foil: a frugal, God-fearing Grammy who seems determined to bring an end to all his fun. A book that's "fa-la-la-licious" ( Louisville Courier Journal ) and filled with funny, charming Yuletide memories (from building a Lego#65533; manger to hunting for the perfect Christmas tree), A Little Fruitcake will inspire even the biggest Grinches around.
