Christmas is coming, and a little girl is writing a letter to Santa. She has recently moved to a new house, and she tells Santa that she doesn’t “need any new toys this year,” but there is something that she does need. This little girl needs a friend. Is this something Santa can bring her?

When the big day arrives, Santa proves that he truly is a miracle worker because he brings the little girl not one, but three friends. Now the little girl has some wonderful companions to share her days with.

This delightfully charming and heart-warming picture book shows that sometimes the best gifts of all are the ones that are warm and furry and that have big loving hearts.
