About the Book

A heart-warming new comedy about a loving but dysfunctional family in the throes of a Christmas crisis. The Norbals will make you feel a whole lot better about those strange people you call relatives. Danny and Penny are broke, Randall is a narcoleptic, Bee wants a sex change, Mom decides to celebrate Winter Solstice instead of Christmas—but Sean’s surprise outdoes them all!


“The Norbals puts a fresh, wildly funny face on family.”
-Winnipeg Sun
