This lovely wordless book tells the story of a young girl's letter to Santa and the fairies who help Santa make her dream come true. She nearly discovers Santa as he delivers her gifts but thanks to the fairy's quick thinking, all is well.

No words, just illustrations. How Santa visits a house with no chimney.
A young girl leaves her stocking out and writes a wish list for Santa to bring her. Angel fairies guide Santa to the girl's house. Illustrations are good but not as expressive as some others.
Wonderful pictures. A book without words. In today's world I think it's called a graphic novel. Graphic sounds so harsh. This is a lovely story with oh so wonderful illustrations.
Beautifully illustrated wordless picture books can be so delightful to allow a non-reading child to "read." This one does not disappoint!
I love this wordless picture book!
