Another Peck classic. Grandma Dowdel is one of my favorite literary characters of all time and I'm so glad Peck wrote her into another great story. A Season of Gifts is told from the point of view of 11 year old Bob. His family has moved next door to Grandma Dowdel in her small Illinois town in the year 1958. Grandma Dowdel might be old, but as Bob and his two sisters Phyllis and Ruth Ann learn, she is still a force to be reckoned with.[return][return]I was supper excited when I found out about this book. I absolutely loved A Long Way from Chicago and A Year Down Yonder. A Season of Gifts is a perfect complement to these first two.[return]Bob and his family have a Christmas they will never forget and they owe it all to Grandma Dowdel.[return][return]I highly recommend this book to any fans of Peck's as well as youth fiction fans.[return]5 stars[return][return]Youth Fiction[return]Ages 10+[return]Dial Books for Young Readers (www.penguin.com/youngreaders)[return]... Date: September 2009[return]Part of a series that includes A Long Way from Chicago (1998) and A Year Down Yonder (2000)[return]176 pages[return][return]Other Books by Richard Peck I would recommend[return][return] * The Ghost Belonged to Me[return] * Ghosts I have Been[return] * Through a Brief Darkness
