Summary
Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get 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 Higbee's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. 

Character Descriptions

Ralphie Parker is our young protagonist. Equal parts dreamer and schemer, Ralphie doesn’t just covet an air rifle, he also knows (or thinks he knows) exactly how to persuade the adults around him that his cause is a righteous one.


Ralph Parker, Ralphie’s older,wiser alter ego, functions as the story’s narrator and assumes theroles of the various townspeople who populate the landscape of the play.


Ralphie’s Mother is a patient parent with firm convictions – in particular, the conviction that her son should not own an air rifle. It takes a lot to ruffle her feathers, but the provocative leg lamp that Ralphie’s father wins in a send-away contest does seem to do the trick.


The Old Man, the Parker family’s beleaguered patriarch, is a grumpy, good-hearted father with a penchant for highly original (and to the audience’s ears profanity-free) invective and a deeply held desire to be a winner.


Randy, Ralphie’s little brother, sure is cute, but getting him to eat his breakfast or don his snowsuit can be a serious headache.


Schwartz and Flick are Ralphie’s two best friends. Flick is the unfortunate guinea pig in the infamous frozen-flagpole licking experiment, while Schwartz becomes the scapegoat when Ralphie accidentally utters an unspeakable word.


Scut Farkas is the schoolyard bully who routinely torments Ralphie and his friends. He has yellow eyes!


Miss Shields is Ralphie’s teacher. She’s also an integral component of his campaign for the perfect Christmas gift.


Esther Jane and Helen are two of Ralphie’s classmates. Helen is something of a child prodigy, while Esther Jane seems to have a particular interest in our young protagonist.
