The Boat of Dreams: A Christmas StoryBy Richard Preston
- Author: Richard Preston
- Edition: 1st Edition
The December afternoons are lonely and dark for Lila and Will, who must come home alone from school while their mother works. They get scared when they find evidence that someone has been visiting the trailer, and when they come home to find a rugged, cantankerous, somewhat smelly old man watching TV, it takes them a while to realize he's...Santa Claus.
What Santa does with the lobster boat and how he handles Will's one and only Christmas dream -- to have his dad back -- is the story of "The Boat of Dreams." It brings laughter, surprises, and tears and tells through an unforgettable story how love is the one power that can overcome all.
