Synopsis: Pure Christmas magic. -- THE HORN BOOK
Every Christmas, Joe writes a letter to Santa, but they've had a few misunderstandings in the past. Last year 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, he finds a living, breathing penguin named Osbert under the tree. Will anything in Joe's life ever be the same? Now in a smaller hardcover edition, this hilarious romp through the land of be-careful-what-you-wish-for comes with its very own Osbert plush toy, in a beautiful package that makes for an utterly charming (and easy to care for) holiday gift.
