The Goffins: Bubbies and Baubles (age 7+)
Jeanne Willis, illustrated by Nick Maland
It’s Christmas time and there’s a new arrival in the Goffins family! George has got used to having Goffins around – the small strange people who live in his grandma's attic. So when he learns that a new arrival in the Goffins’s family might mean that they leave the attic, he finds it hard to get into the Christmas spirit and not to be jealous of the new baby. However, as the snow begins to fall, he sets his mind to finding the Goffins a new place to live. In the adventures that ensue, George learns more about his family history and more about himself, and it becomes clear that his Christmas might not be as lonely as he first thought.
