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," Lachie lives with his family of twelve, and 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. The story, derived from an old Scottish folk song, is reflected superbly in the charming illustrations of Nonny Hogrogian. Always Room for One More is the winner of the 1966 Caldecott Medal.
