On the Fourth Day of Christmas...

On the 4th day of Christmas my true love gave to me 4 calling birds

Today's prize is a hardback copy of What Child Is This?: A Christmas Story by Caroline B. Cooney, one of my favorite authors.

About the Book (from "Not everyone is lucky at Christmas. Some people would call 16-year-old Liz Kitchell and her family truly fortunate, but it doens't feel that way to her. It seems that only a miracle can give 8-year-old Katie her holiday wish. She wants a family, something she does not have as a foster child. As for 17-year-old Matt, he too is in a foster home and is finally letting himself feel a snese of belonging. When he allows himself to do a good deed for Katie, he doesn't realize what would happen. is the spirit of Christmas stong enough to grant the impossible?"
