Humorist's Jean Sheperd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940's follows 9-year old Ralphie Parker in his quest to find a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher, and even Santa Claus himself, at Goldblatt's Department Store. The consistent reponse, "You'll shoot your eye out!!" All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here including Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the leg lamp; and more.
