“A gentle, sweet story of Santa as he waits for the Christmas magic. The pictures match the text perfectly, in a way that only Jon J Muth could manage. This one belongs on the shelf next to your The Night Before Christmas.”
— Katherine Fergason, Bunch of Grapes Bookstore, Vineyard Haven, MA
Best-selling author, Lauren Thompson, and Best-selling Caldecott Honor Book artist Jon J Muth join forces to present a story that is filled with the magic, wonder, and love of Christmas.
Far, far North, when the nights are longest and the stars shine brightest, Santa begins to prepare for his big night of giving. He gathers his reindeer, feeds them parsnips and berries, and polishes his bells and his sled. Then lovingly, he chooses toys for every child in the world. For Santa loves them all, and he knows what each child at heart wants most. Then, with the thrum of magic that makes reindeers fly, he spreads the Christmas joy and warmth throughout the world--as he always has -- and always will until the end of time.
