Ever since the accident, Carlos just isn't the same. He no longer gazes into the night sky, dreaming about becoming a basketball star. He doesn't even practice anymore, now that he's in a wheelchair.
But Christmas is coming, and Carlos' best friend, Willy, knows that if there is ever a time to cheer Carlos up, it's now. And what better to lift his spirits than a visit from Santa Claus himself! The trouble is, Santa has never come to the rough neighborhood where the boys live. Even if he did, how would he get up to the nineteenth floor, with no chimneys and a locked lobby door? But Willy believes Santa will make it . . . somehow.
Yin and Chris Soentpiet, the author-illustrator pair that created the ALA Notable Coolies, bring us a beautiful tale of friendship and hope for the holidays.
