Synopsis: "Sophie wishes for a kitten just like the little black one she sees in the snow the day before Christmas. The kitten wishes for a home. Can the magic of Christmas Eve make both their wishes come true? Full color."

My Review: This was kind of a sad Christmas story. You can't help but feel bad for the little kitten looking for someone to love it and a warm place to sleep. The illustrations are very cute, but a little busy for really little eyes. A very sweet story.

A kitten wanders the streets on Christmas Eve, looking for a safe, warm place to sleep, but no one will take him in. Finally, he falls asleep on Santa's sack, and ends up as a Christmas gift for a little girl. Super cute Christmas story
