A Christmas story gathers together in one hilarious volume the gems of autobiographical humor that Jean Shepherd drew upon to create his enduring film. Here is young Ralphie Parker's shocking discovery that his decoder ring is really a device to promote Ovaltine; his mother and father's pitched battle over the fate of a lascivious leg lamp and, most crucially, Ralphie's unstoppable campaign to get Santa or anyone else to give him a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle. Who cares that the whole adult world is telling him, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid"? The pieces that comprise A Christmas story coalesce in a magical fashion to become an irresistible piece of Americana

Ralphie is a 9-year-old who wants only one thing for Christmas - an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB rifle with a compass in the stock. Between his parents, his teacher, and even Santa Claus all Ralphie hears is "No, you'll shoot your eye out." By this time, Ralphie has had enough of that. When Scut Farkus, the schoolyard bully and his sidekick Grover Dill start in on Ralphie while he's on his way home from school that day, Ralphie knocks Grover to the ground, beats Scut's face bloody, and then pounds Scut's head on the snow-covered ground several times. Ralphie thinks he'll never get the BB gun for Christmas now. And all of the other kids are going to be getting what they want for Christmas
