What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In the spirit of Christmas classics The Polar Express and The Night Before Christmas comes a holiday tale about the magic of Santa, illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Jerry Pinkney

Lonely Hannah is delighted to discover a warm black boot as she gathers kindling in the forest. A poor woman, she doesn’t have proper shoes on her cold feet. “Glory be! I only wish I had your mate,” she says to the boot, and the next morning, to her great surprise, there is not just one boot but two sitting by her bed! More wishes bring even better gifts—but the best is still to come: A visitor arrives at her door—a man with a big white beard, wearing a red suit and only one boot. Who could this magical visitor be? Santa Claus, of course! And he has one more surprise in store for Hannah: She wakes up the next morning to find a new puppy waiting for her!

author
Lisa Wheeler

Award-winning children’s author, Lisa Wheeler has worked many jobs, most of them involving bad smells. “I’ve washed diapers–both baby and adult–, scrubbed toilets, and even spent a few months as the best night-crawler wrangler on a small island.” But her favorite job, hands-down, is writing. “Fresh books are one of my favorite smells—bonus!”

Lisa is passionate about children’s books. “I love everything about them!” She’s written over 40 picture books in prose and rhyme, an easy reader series, four books of poems, and creative nonfiction for the very young. “As far back as I can remember, I’ve been a rhymer.
