A Season of Gifts by Richard Peck

Cover art of the book A Season of Gifts by Richard PeckAuthor Richard Peck, who writes for tweens and young teens, won the Newbery Medal in 2001 for his novel A Year Down Yonder. His novel A Season of Gifts brings back the unforgettable character Grandma Dowdel, who was featured in both Peck's A Long Way from Chicago and A Year Down Yonder. Reviewer Jean Hatfield recommends A Season of Gifts, which she describes as a "sweet, funny story set in 1958 in rural Illinois," for middle grade readers and told me that readers don't need to have read Peck's previous books featuring Grandma Dowdel to enjoy this one.
