General fiction, Holiday fiction
Christmas isn't what it used to be for Santa. First there's the rushing around to fill children's last-minute requests. And then everything goes wrong-from ailing reindeer to an accident with his sleigh to burning coals in the fireplace. Maybe--just maybe-it's… time to retire. But what is the real Santa to do when he meets his replacement, and the new Santa doesn't even like children? The creators of A Christmas Fantasy have collaborated on another holiday gem. The jolly paintings of Victor and Glenys Ambrus draw children into the irresistible world of Santa's Workshop. And the beloved author Carolyn Haywood has produced a story that touches the heart of the holiday, and one that will be as enduring as its hero. For as long as there is love in the world, there will always be a Santa Claus.
