4.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting book for kids October 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The vivid colors and captivating pictures of "A Christmas Wish" make it an instant family classic. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, the underlying message is universal.

The beautifully drawn characters are immediately lovable and the descriptive and charming story is one that your child will want to read again and again. "A Christmas Wish" uses rhyming to make the story more fun and memorable for a child, which is quite reminiscent of the Dr. Seuss classics. This incredible story includes descriptions such as, "Suddenly the sled dropped like a tone, the wind howled, Raging by as they plunged to the ground.
A thousand feet they fell, They feel faster and farther, spellbound."

These beautifully written words make it is easy to understand why children find this book enchanting. Bilbo's Adventures: A Christmas Wish (Volume 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Christmas Tale August 31, 2011
By Carl
What a delightful little story and so beautifully illustrated. Santa embarks on a journey with a hapless Teddy Bear name Bilbo and off they go to far away places to end up in the most magical place of all. Bilbo's wish to be a Christmas present takes him to a place all children dream of. But it's a secret for now. You have to read the story to find out where he ends up! Children young and old will delight in the adventures of this specail little bear and the tale will be a Christmas staple for years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars Action Packed, Beautifully Illustrated, Christmas Book October 30, 2011
This is a beautifully illustrated children's book for Christmas. The Story is charming. Each page is action packed, as Bilbo travels from country to country with Father Christmas, in search of a home. The text races along to maintain the excitment right to the very end. And what a wonderfully happy ending it is!
As Peter's parents, we are proud of this achievment of Cheri and Peter, and do not hesitate to say that this book is a must for every Christmas stocking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Gem October 29, 2011
What a great children's animated movie this delightful Christmas book would make! Is there any tyke who could resist Bilbo, The Little Teddy Bear, as he helps Santa deliver Christmas wishes while being "transported through magical stars" on Christmas Eve? Of course not. "A Christmas Wish!" boasts dazzling colors, a fun adventure, and a wonderful message to cheer any child, especially one who might be feeling "left out." Kudos to Cheri and Peter Lucking for creating this little Christmas gem.
