Wilson & Bella's Christmas Wish! follows Wilson, the adopted poodle and his furry friend Bella go on their quest to find a foster home for their canine friend Holly. This story incorporates the beauty and traditions of Christmas and provides wonderful lessons for children. Filled with charming illustrations of real pets, including Wilson and Bella, owned by the author.

Each page has a little tale about the meaning of Christmas: friendship, generosity, hope, togetherness, tradition, celebration and joy. Children will learn about fostering animals, how providing a temporary home for a pet alleviates overcrowded shelters and helps to transition a pet into their "fur-ever" home.

It will undoubtedly be enjoyed every holiday season. Written and illustrated by award winning author Susan Castriota.

Based on the real life fostering of "Holly". Holly was a mixed lab who spent all of her life outside. Her owner dropped her off at the Humane Animal Rescue in Pittsburgh, as she needed surgery on her leg and the owner did not want to pay for it. Bethany and Kenny were active foster parents of senior dogs and dogs with health issues. They fell in love with Holly and right before Christmas, they adopted her. She lived out her senior years in their loving home.
