Description: "Efan Little has a plan. He is ten years old and in all his life his family has never had a Christmas tree. Full of determination and holiday spirit, Efan sets out on the morning of Christmas Eve, with his life's savings in hand, in search of the perfect tree. Efan very quickly discovers that his life's savings won't cover the cost of a Christmas tree, and realizes that he has some more thinking to do. In this entertaining and briskly paced story, Efan Little demonstrates that tenacity and ingenuity can sometimes improve the very best of plans."
Rodney Pate's glowing pictures evoke all that is special at Christmas on 128th Street!
