Publisher Description

Wally Lamb, the beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hour I First Believed, I Know This Much Is True, and She’s Come Undone, delivers a holiday treat with Wishin’ and Hopin’—an unforgettable novella that captures the warmth and joy of the holiday season. Poignant and hilarious, in a vein similar to Jean Shepherd’s A Christmas Story and David Sedaris’s The Santaland Diaries, Lamb’s Christmas tale focuses on a feisty parochial school fifth grader named Felix Funicello—a distant cousin of the iconic Annette!

A Delightful Christmas Read

This little nook is quite charming, The characters are wonderfully funny and sweetly innocent. Took me back to Christmas' past when the world wasn't so jaded.

The highlife! ,

Whishin’ and Hopin’

Delicious delight. Naive and spot on.Laugh out loud funny. A sweetness long missed.

Pookielee ,

Ehh.

I'm reading the actual book book not on my iPod and the main point of the book is sweet and keeps your attention but there are some very inappropriate parts. Very un-needed.
