The Christmas Boot by Lisa Wheeler illustrated by Jerry Pinkney*

Hannah Greyweather lives in a ramshackle cabin in the woods.  As she goes out into the snow to gather firewood in her rag covered feet, she discovers a black boot lying in the snow.  When she tries it on, it fits her foot perfectly! She relishes in its comfort and warmth.  That night she wishes for another boot and finds one lying next to her bed.  Why stop at boots?!  Soon she wishes for mittens, a fluffy bed, a fabulous feast and a big fancy house.
Then the owner of the black boot appears at her fancy house, asking for his boot. Life returns to normal for Hannah Greyweather but a sweet surprise awaits her.
-Borrowed from the library.
*Highly recommend.
