The Zelnick family likes Christmas a lot, but Aldo-whose plan to get presents galore may be running into a glitch-does not. He thinks that "giving being better than receiving" is gobbledygook and doesn't understand what the "Adopt-a-Family Tree" at the mall has to do with him. Guinness World Records, holiday gnomes, a glass-blowing grandma, and generous helpings of goofiness abound in this seventh installment in the series. A vocabulary-building glossary of fun and challenging words that start with the letter G, such as gumption, gloat, and gadzooks, is also featured.
