"Singer-songwriter Workman uses the title track from a 2001 EP as the foundation for his first children’s book, a beguiling story of people coming together one winter night. It’s also a notable debut for Eckwall, whose delicate paintings transport readers to a remote cottage shared by a gray-haired woman and a boy. Together, they prepare a meal before a diverse array of guests arrive, including a brown-skinned family of four and a redheaded girl who rides up on a wolf, tilting an already-magical setting into something even more fantastical." - Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
“The rhythms are beguiling and carefree, never once veering into sing-song, and it begs to be read-aloud, especially at this time of year when we gather with loved ones.” - Kirkus Reivews
“The rhymed text reads fluid and effortless, and the illustrations are delicate and cozy. Beautiful bedtime story.” - Reviews in Chalk blog
“She brings beauty and a hint of magic to Workman's evocative lyrics; together, they create a world and a night that will enchant readers of all ages.” - 49th Shelf blog

Top Customer Reviews
The illustrations are lovely, and have almost a fairy-tale quality to them, but with a more modern twist, they’re fanciful and beautifully illustrated by Jensine Eckwall. The story is equally charming, based on a young boy and his grandmother hosting a gathering to their tiny cabin in the wintertime, with family, friends and as they arrive the house expands to fit everyone comfortably inside.
It sounds, when read, like you’re reading lyrics, so I would recommend listening to Hawksley Workman’s song before reading this, but the song would also be a nice “follow-up” bedtime song if your little ones enjoy such things. There’s a quietness, despite the frivolity of the pictures, which seems to “belong” to the lyrics, each word precious and purposefully chosen. A reverence for all who are precious to us, and those moments we are blessed to share with them.
