The Christmas Boot

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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!

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 26, 2016 – Gently told and exquisitely illustrated, this holiday jewel centers on Hannah Greyweather, a poor woman who lives in a "ramshackle cabin" and finds a boot in the snow. Her wishes for the boot's mate, mittens, and a fancy house are magically granted. After answering a knock at the door of her sprawling new mansion, Hannah finds a bearded man wearing a red suit and one black boot, whose mate she readily returns. When he asks if there is anything she wants, Hannah's request for "someone to talk to" (as well as replacement mittens and boots) leads to a resolution that will warm the hearts of readers of all ages. Pinkney's (The Lion & the Mouse) meticulously detailed art exudes old-world charm and is a splendid match for Wheeler's (the Dino series) tender tale about taking only what one needs. Ages 4 8. Author's agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. Illustrator's agent: Sheldon Fogelman, Sheldon Fogelman Agency.
