Lonely Hannah is delighted to discover a warm black boot as she gathers kindling in the forest. A poor woman, she doesn't have proper shoes on her cold feet. "Glory be! I only wish I had your mate," she says to the boot, and the next morning, to her great surprise, there is not just one boot but two sitting by her bed! More wishes bring even better gifts --- but the best is still to come: A visitor arrives at her door --- a man with a big white beard, wearing a red suit and only one boot. Who could this magical visitor be? Santa Claus, of course! And he has one more surprise in store for Hannah: She wakes up the next morning to find a new puppy waiting for her!

In this installment of dino competition, meat eaters face off against plant eaters in three high-speed auto events: drag racing, off-road racing, and stock-car racing. Lisa Wheeler's rhymes explore thoughtful questions such as: Which dinosaurs would make the best chasers for support in a desert off-road race? Does T-Rex's king status transfer to the track? And can Diplosaurus actually fit inside a stock car? Barry Gott's illustrations bring all the hilarious action to life.
