Winner of the Caldecott Medal.

From children's book author Sorche Nic Leodhas and illustrator Nonny Hogrogian comes a heartwarming story, Always Room for One More.

Lachie MacLachlan, the generous hero of this enchanting tale, is the exception to the rule that the Scots are a thrifty lot. In his "wee house in the heather," where he lives with his family of twelve, he welcomes to his hearth every weary traveler who passes by on a stormy night. "There's always room for one more," says Lachie, and how his grateful guests say a wonderful "Thank you" provides a delightfully warm and tender ending to this hilarious tale of kindness.

Always Room for One More is the winner of the 1966 Caldecott Medal.

Praise For…

“Lachie MacLachlan...generously extends a welcome to all who pass by. Soon, a tinker, a tailor, a sailor, a lassie, an 'auld' wife, a bagpiper, and others join him, until the jubilant dancing and singing literally bring the house down....With the help of his guests, [Lachie] builds a bigger house, where there is 'always room for one more.'” —Book Links
