It's Christmas Eve, but the weather is warm and the grass still green. Before falling asleep, a boy makes an urgent wish for a snowstorm like the one in his swirling snow globe. Later that night, something magical begins to happen. First one flake falls from the cloudless sky, then more and more and more! The world outside the boy's window is soon taken over by the tumbling, twirling snow creatures that have brought the storm with them. And that's not all they've brought! Santa himself makes an appearance with another surprise for the boy-a pair of skates to wear as he skims across the frozen pond the next morning, marveling at the world transformed by his Christmas wish. |
Full of superbly surrealistic illustrations, this enchanting picture book features eight translucent pages that draw the reader into the magic of a seemingly impossible wish come true.
