Mr. Crockett is neither handsome nor fashionable, but he knows a secret--all things need love and care. With years of attention and patience, he transforms his shabby brownstone into an elegant home and brings a scrawny, neglected tree to life, teaching his critical neighbors that beauty can be found in unexpected places. Yan Nascimbene's striking illustrations breathe new life into this holiday classic, originally published in 1972, that gently captures the true meaning of Christmas.
