Timeless tales, such as those concerning Saint Nicholas, generate children’s endless questions about our holiday traditions, such as “Where did Saint Nicholas come from?” “How does he visit so many children in just one night?” “Why does he leave gifts for girls and boys?”
Luigi and the Lost Wish is a continuation of the Nicholas Stories series, which is about a boy who had a very unselfish wish. His wish was granted, and mankind was forever changed. In Saint Nicholas’s busy workshop, a Christmas wish is mysteriously missing. Confusion ensues, and all the elves, especially Luigi, blame Goe. Surprisingly, the wish is found. This experience helps them all to remember the true meaning of Christmas, with a heartfelt message that it is better to help others and that outer appearance is not that important—it is what’s in the heart that matters most.
The Nicholas Stories will lead your family on a heartwarming journey to a place where gifts of love explain the true meaning of Christmas.
