Ages 9 to 12 years. 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 gobbledegook 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 instalment 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.

"Every library that serves Wimpy Kid fans (which is every library, period) should have the Aldo Zelnick series on its shelves." --Katie Ahearn, children's librarian, Tenley-Friendship Public Library, Washington DC
"One of the most remarkable things about these books is the voice of Aldo, which rings true from every page. The hilarious drawings enhance the text with jokes and visual humor that make Aldo's personality pop." --Rebecca McGregor, Picture Literacy, Inc., on the Aldo Zelnick Comic Novel series
