Next thing he knew there was the strange Santa like man laughing and weird music and all these wonderful things he had wished for swirling through the air. The next morning when he woke his room was filled of all the wonderful things he had wished for. When his brother and sister saw it all they wanted to play with the toys too. But they couldn’t. Every time they tried to enjoy one of Wilton’s toys it wouldn’t work. Wilton thought this was wonderful! All these toys could only be enjoyed by him.
That night he went back to the wishing well and wished for lots and lots of candy. Again there was the strange Santa like man and the candy was swirling through the air. When he woke in the morning he had tons of candy throughout his room. Again, his brother and sister came in and wanted to try Wilton’s candy. But whenever they ate a piece it didn’t taste like candy should. Only Wilton could enjoy the candy.
And so this continued for some time until Wilton’s room was full, his house and even the yard. But the only person that could enjoy any of the toys, candy and other things Wilton wished for was Wilton. Soon he had no friends. And Wilton had become greedy. He didn’t miss a day getting to the wishing well and wishing for something new.
Then one day the neighbor kids chased Wilton down the block, pelting him with snowballs as they ran. His own brother and sister didn’t want a thing to do with him. Wilton was right back where he started. He cried himself to sleep. And that night a Christmas Princess came to visit him. She explained to Wilton the errors of his way and helped him fix what he had wronged.
There’s much more to the story. It’s a wonderful story that will help teach your child about being greedy and how their actions effect others around them. In the end Wilton realized the spirit of Christmas and I’m sure your child will too. The illustrations are captivating and the story moves at a nice pace. It easily kept my 5 year old daughter’s attention all the way through.
