Old Cyrus Grape doesn’t like children. And he insists that the skating pond is ‘his.’ Mr. Whiskers knows this isn’t true, but since he can’t prove it, there’ll be no skating…not even on Christmas Day!
That is…unless cleaning Mr. Whiskers’ house uncovers some important information.

About the Author & Illustrator:
“For over 30 years Wende and Harry Devlin delighted children with their beloved “Cranberry” and “Old Witch” series, as well as other wonderful books. Their stories touched on issues that are as relevant today as they were generations ago: the importance of helping and supporting each other; championing the “underdog;” courage in the face of adversity; and many others.” Read more about them here.
A Few Reviews:
“I had been talking about the Cranberry Christmas book we had when our two daughters were growing up, especially about the cookie recipe in it. When my wife and I moved after our retirement, we sold lots of books and I guess that was one of them. My youngest daughter, who is a profound gift giver, surprised me with the book this Christmas. It has been passed around the family and we have all enjoyed reading it again and it is available to our two grandchildren. And, of course, my daughter baked a huge batch of cranberry cookies to go with the book. It doesn’t get much better.” –Amazon Reviewer A. Fuleihan
“I grew up reading this book every Christmas and my older sister and I loved making the cookies together. I made the cookies today for my 5 kids and they loved them as much as I do. I hope my grandchildren will love this book and recipe someday as well.” – Amazon Reviewer SpaghettiGalieti
