Come celebrate the holidays with the release of Tony DiTerlizzi’s latest picture book, “The Broken Ornament.” Norman Rockwell Museum will be one of many stops DiTerlizzi is making throughout the United States on his “Deck Your Shelves Book Tour.”

On Sunday, December 9 beginning at 2pm, DiTerlizzi will discuss the origin and development of “The Broken Ornament” and will sign copies of the book on sale at Norman Rockwell Museum store.

Jack wants this to be the best Christmas ever, and he knows just how to make it happen…

More! More lights, more presents, more cookies, more treats. More. More. More! So, when Jack breaks a dusty old ornament, he’s not sure why his mom is so upset. They can always get more ornaments, so what’s the big deal? Turns out the ornament was an heirloom, precious for more reasons than one. And Jack has a lot to learn about the true meaning of Christmas.

A fairy emerges from the shattered ornament. She has the power to make the most magical Christmasy things happen. Suddenly trees are sprouting, reindeer are flying, and snowmen are snowball fighting. All of it is so perfect, or it would be if she could fix Mom’s ornament. But she can’t.

So it’s up to Jack to make some Christmas magic of his own.

Included with museum admission, free for members and kids under 18.
