Christmas at Henry and Mudge's house means candles, carols, and cookies, and best of all, a visit from the whole family. Everyone from Great-Grandpa Bill to Cousin Annie and her bunny, Snowball, join them for the Christmas-morning breakfast spectacular. Between delicious pancake smells wafting through the halls and presents galore waiting to be opened, this just might be the best Christmas ever. But soon Henry learns that his most special present of all is one he has had all along...a gift that's far too big to fit in his stocking!
