Santa, Please Bring Me A Gnome

"Dear Santa?" That's how Tess starts her letter. "You don't have to bring me any toys this year. The only thing I want is a real gnome."

Full of anticipation, Tess looks forward to the day her new friend arrives: a friend she can take everywhere, and with whom she can share everything. With Grandpa and Grandma's help, she gets everything ready. Grandpa builds little pieces of furniture, Grandma sews a little blanket, and Tess prepares a welcome meal. And then it's finally Christmas Eve. Will Santa bring a real gnome?

This heartwarming picture book with wonderfully funny illustrations captures the hopes and dreams of Christmas -- and how the gift you didn't expect is sometimes what you actually wanted.

"Van Lindenhizen’s smudgy paintings create a cozy world for Tess, and it’s clear that she has many attentive adults in her life. Though the story ends abruptly, Swerts gently addresses Christmas expectations and disappointments while suggesting that sometimes the wrong gift turns out just right. And Santa’s note to Tess might give parents in similar situations some ideas." -- Publishers Weekly
