Description


The anticipatory excitement of Christmas Eve builds in a festive way in this follow-up to the much-loved Ghost in the House.

Jingle-jingle!
There’s a girl in the house on this snowy Christmas Eve.
Creeping down, step by step, here she comes.
But what’s going on?
Santa’s snacks are gone,
And the only thing that's left is . . . CRUMBS!

Follow a child on a most magical night as she looks for the source of the sound that woke her up. In a lively, cumulative story full of page-turn reveals, all is not what it seems. While the little girl searches the house, she encounters some unexpected new friends. But the biggest surprise is sure to come last!

About the Author


Ammi-Joan Paquette is the author of many books for young readers, including the spooky picture book Ghost in the House. In addition to her writing, she is a literary agent representing authors of children’s books. She lives outside Boston with her family.

Adam Record started doodling on a bench in church and now gets inspired by old children’s books and vintage posters. He lives in Utah with his wife and three children.

Praise For…


Record’s digital artwork features bold blocks of color and simple geometric shapes, creating scenes that are simultaneously energetic and hushed—presumably the girl’s parents are sleeping upstairs somewhere.
