Ivy, Holly, and Mr. and Mrs. Jones each have one Christmas wish. Ivy, an orphan, wishes for a real home and sets out in search of the grandmother she desperately wants to believe she has. Holly, a doll, wishes for a child to take her home and bring her to life. And the Joneses wish more than anything for a child to share their holiday — and to love for the rest of their days. With a few acts of kindness, a couple of twists of fate, and a little Christmas magic, all three wishes can be fulfilled!
This touching story, beautifully accented by beloved artist Barbara Cooney's luminous illustrations, has been a Christmas favorite since it was first published in the Ladies’ Home Journal in the 1950s. Now, this cozy book, filled with the warm glow of the Christmas spirit, is available to share with a new generation.
