Charles and his Boggan set out to find a wish tree. Their journey is long and tiresome and they are slowed by the friends they stop to help on the way. When Charles falls asleep on his sled, he is aided the rest of the way by the animals of the forest. This book has a little magic to it that really comes alive in the later pages. The illustrations are beautiful and fun on the imagination. In some ways, it reminds me of The Polar Express. Different story, but similar feelings.
