Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's a typical Christmas Eve at the North Pole. That is, until Santa suddenly disappears! Luckily, his polar pals are on the case. But will the furry friends rescue dear old Santa before it's too late for him to make his special deliveries?
            Filled with Lisa Wheeler's festive rhymes and Ivan Bates's cozy illustrations, here is a rollicking Christmas adventure that little ones will want to hear over and over again.

Synopsis:

Simon and his mom don't have much--the cardboard house they built for themselves, a tiny Christmas tree, and a picture of an angel pinned to one wall. On Christmas Eve they take in a frail stranger who needs a place to keep warm, and the next morning Simon wakes early to find that the woman has vanished. Instead, he sees December, the angel from the picture, with her wings fanned out over their cardboard house. Could she be real?

Synopsis:

Simon and his mother do not have much except for the cardboard house they built, a tiny Christmas tree, and a picture of an angel on the wall. On Christmas Eve, they take in a frail stranger looking for a place to keep warm. The next morning, Simon discovers the woman has vanished. Could she have been an angel? Full-color illustrations.
