How Murray Saved Christmas

How Murray Saved Christmas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Santa is put out of commission, deli owner Murray Kleiner reluctantly agrees to take his place, putting a spin on Christmas that's all his own. And with the help of a pushy elf and an eager-to-believe young boy, Murray finds that even though he's not big enough to fill Santa's suit, he's got more than enough heart to get the job done.

Illustrated by David Catrow.

Synopsis:

From Mike Reiss, former head writer of "The Simpsons", comes a decidedly skewed yet charming tale for Christmas. When Santa is put out of commission, deli owner Murray Kleiner agrees to take over and puts his own spin on Christmas. Full color.
