In 'Christmas Village', two children
experience a magical holiday
inside a tiny table-top community
The little Christmas villages you see on
table tops may look peaceful, but two children discover there’s
a lot more to them than meets the eye.
In Jack Gilhooly’s book, Christmas
Village, two children who live in Indiana visit their grandparents for
the holiday. The children discover the little village in their grandparents’
living room is no ordinary village. Playing with the controls, they wind
up tumbling into the village -- and shrinking.
They soon realize they have a new father
and mother, and there is a mystery afoot in the village. Why do things
like the library keep disappearing? The villagers don’t realize
the “crime wave” is the result of Grandpa moving buildings
around back in the world of Big People.
Shuffling between the world of Big People
and the world of the little villagers, the children discover two Christmas
celebrations can be better than one.
Other books available from McNeil and Richards

a professor in VIrginia who is tricked into helping the Soviet Union in
1990 by writing a book with a Soviet agent/graduate student. The Soviets
think the book might save the Soviet Union and its collapsing economy.
But the professor arranges for the secret book to be published, and instead
of helping the Soviets, the professor and the graduate student put the
last nail in the Soviets’ coffin.
