It's Christmastime in Toytown. Lights are twinkling, bells are jingling, and children can't wait for Santa and his sleigh to arrive. Presents are wonderful, of course, but Little Whistle and his friends need something else for Christmas. Will Santa answer their letter and make their wishes come true?
In Little Whistle's first holiday adventure, Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and artist Tim Bowers once again bring the cozy world of Toytown to life--and capture the magical spirit of Christmas.
