This new addition to the series for beginning readers was adapted from THE LITTLES AND THE TRASH TINIES (Scholastic 1977).
It's almost Christmas, and all the Littles are full of good cheer...all except Uncle Nick. Uncle Nick just moved in. It was time for him to rest after thirty years of fighting mice in Trash City. Uncle Nick likes his new home, but he misses all his friends in Trash City.
So the Littles decide to get Uncle Nick a very special Christmas present. Tom and Lucy travel all the way to Trash City, where they meet many strange and wonderful tiny people. They bring some of Uncle Nick's friends back to visit him -- now all the Littles can have a Merry Christmas!
