Christmas Eve at the Mellops' by Tomi Ungerer

The story of Mr. Mellops and his four sons: Casimir, Isidor, Felix, and Ferdinand, and what happens when they all have the same inspiration to surprise the family with a Christmas tree.  Their hall ends up filled with "trees and tears" until Mr. Mellops brings up a charitable solution.  Originally published in 1960, Christmas Eve at the Mellops' is sweet and charming, everything that a well-crafted picture book should be.
