What Child is This? 

What Child is This? (1997)
A Christmas Story
A novel by Caroline B Cooney

 
On this Christmas Eve, the snow lies on the ground and the stars shine bright, but the grown-ups leave a lot to be desired.

And the children desire so much.

Katie, a foster child, wants only one thing: a family.

Who is there who can bring such as immense gift?  There are no wise men coming from the East.  There are no shepherds watching in the fields.

But there is Matt Morden, age sixteen, who believes he is doing a good deed.

There is Liz Kitchell, also sixteen, whose family decorates and celebrates but leaves Liz wondering where the meaning of the holiday has gone.

There are Mr.  Knight and his son, Tack, who run an inn and put up a tree on which children's wishes will hang, waiting to be granted.

It's Christmas, the season of miracles, joy, and hope.  Is that spirit strong enough to bring about the impossible?

Join Caroline B.  Cooney, bestselling author of The Face on the Milk Carton and The Voice on the Radio, in celebrating a most memorable Christmas.  What Child Is This? is a story about giving and the beauty of love.
