Publisher Comments:

An unforgettable new character from the creator of the hilarious Goodnight iPad 

 

Nicholas Duck loves Christmas, and he also loves the new Santa hat thats mysteriously delivered to his house. But when his friends see him and immediately launch into their Christmas lists, he doesnt know what to do . . . until he runs into Santa himself! David Milgrims exuberant holiday story is a joy to read aloud, and the silly animals and bright colors make it a perfect for board book audiences. “Jingle quack, jingle quack . . .”

 

Synopsis:

When Santas knocked out cold by a Jack-in-the-Boxers walloping punch, deli owner Murray Kleiner reluctantly agrees to take his place. The suit doesnt fit, Murray smells a bit like pickles, and theres no way he can remember the names of all those reindeer. But with the help of a pushy elf and an eager-to-believe young boy, Murray finds out that even though hes not big enough to fill Santas suit, hes got more than enough heart to get the job done.

Synopsis:

From the Emmy Award(-winning writer for "The Simpsons" comes this hilarious sleeper, now in paperback. When Santa is knocked out cold by a Jack-in-the-Box's walloping punch, deli owner Murray Kleiner takes his place. Full color.

Kelly Brennan, December 23, 2007 (view all comments by Kelly Brennan)
This is by far my favorite Christmas storybook. I tote it along with me every year to family and friends' houses. The adults and children alike enjoy the humor, the gorgeous illustrations, and the poetic rhymes. It has become a staple for my holiday experience. I have since purchased one for a close Jewish friend who has married a Christian man, since (though it's not said,) our hero Murray, is clearly intended to be Jewish. It speaks to the spirit of the Christmas season, with humor and love.
