About The Book

Santa has the best job he can think of -- bringing presents each Christmas to children all around the world. Every year he prepares for his trip: He trims his beard, takes a bath, gets dressed, and packs up his sleigh for the long night ahead. But there are always a few unexpected delays that make things a little hectic. Muckle, one of the elves who helps Santa, thinks he can come up with a more efficient way for delivering the toys -- a method that won't involve Santa at all.
Stephen Krensky's understated text and S. D. Schindler's charming illustrations come together to create a warm and funny tale that reminds us just how important the human touch really is.
