Joe gets more than he bargains for in this tale of Christmas magic. This year, I was very specific in my letter to Santa Claus. Each year at Christmas, Joe writes a letter to Santa.
But theyve had a few misunderstandings in the past. Last year, for example, Joe wanted a fire-engine-red racecar with retracting headlights, and he did get one but it was only three inches long. So this year Joe is really, really careful.
He describes exactly what he wants and on Christmas morning, guess whats waiting for him under the tree! Santa has brought him a living, breathing, black-and-white penguin named Osbert. Will anything in Joes life ever be the same?
Fabulously illustrated by H. B. Lewis, Elizabeth Cody Kimmels hilarious romp through the land of be-careful-what-you-wish-for offers a whole years worth of holiday fun magic.
When a boy finally gets exactly what he wants from Santa, he learns that owning a real penguin may not have been a good idea after all.
