Deck the halls and mix up the eggnog! It's Christmas Eve for little Danielle and Francesco—a time for family, presents, music, and most importantly . . . food!

    The siblings are very excited to celebrate at Aunt Babe's house, where there are too many aunties, uncles, and cousins to count. And all is peaceful and bright—until they realize that someone forgot to bring the dessert! Francesco and Danielle know they can save Christmas, but only if they can remember their mother's cheesecake recipe before it's too late.

    This festive tribute to food and family will get young readers in the holiday spirit and make them very hungry for a Christmas feast—Italian style!
