Summary
Grace loves everything about Christmas, especially acting out all the parts in the Nativity. But when strangers come to stay with Grace and her family, she wants to say "no room at the inn." Will Grace learn to give up the spotlight and make these new friends feel welcome? Just in time for the twentieth anniversary of Amazing Grace , the newest addition to the acclaimed series will capture the hearts of established fans and new readers alike.

Mary Hoffman's books featuring this spirited character have earned considerable critical acclaim. Amazing Grace was an ALA Notable book and a Booklist Editors' Choice, and Princess Grace was a Bank Street Best Books of the Year selection.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Grace, star of Amazing Grace (1980) and its many sequels, is looking forward to Christmas but not to the visitors a girl and her mother, both of whom Grace has never met, and as far as she's concerned, there's no room at the inn. But the girls bond over fathers who are far away, and soon the holiday becomes more special than most. The conclusion is inevitable, but the exploration of the mixed feelings that can occur around the holidays seems real. The sometimes stiff poses of the characters are leavened by the engaging expressions on their faces, starting with a smiling Grace on the cover.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Starring in her fourth picture book, Grace learns that her Nana has invited distant family friends to spend Christmas with them. Grace isn't sure about having strangers there, but she and shy Savannah discover that they have something in common: Grace misses her father, who lives in Africa, as much as Savannah misses being in Trinidad for Christmas. Hoffman's empathetic storytelling and Van Wright and Hu's naturalistic illustrations make the most of Grace's abundant humor and personality. It's a contemporary holiday story with no shortage of heart. Ages 3-5. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
