What gifts do Jess and Leslie exchange at Christmas? How is each gift esp. appropriate for the receiver?
The gifts the two friends exchange are indeed particularly appropriate. For Jess, the budding artist, Leslie chooses a deluxe set of charcoals, with which Jess draws countless pictures.
For his part, Jess is at a loss what to give his friend. He wants to find something special, yet has very limited means to buy anything. By chance, he comes across a sign that reads "free puppies". And so he gives Leslie a puppy, which becomes the Prince of Terabithia.
