DEAR SANTA by Norm Foster

Synopsis: Christmas Eve is approaching, and Santa’s crotchety Chief of Staff thinks that after 500 years it’s high time for a new sleigh. The North Pole Special arrives with the latest model, a stowaway, and the last supplies of the season… minus one critically important item. Throw in a little unrequited love, silly elves, and an off tune choir, and you’ve got good clean fun for the whole family!
