Summary from Goodreads
“Sometimes, even the merriest, most cheerful guy on the planet wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. Particularly on that fateful Christmas Eve. . . First off, Santa steps out of bed and stubs his toe on a bowling ball. Then the elves shrink his Santa suit, Mrs. Claus puts him on a diet, and his reindeer nearly crash into the North Pole. When Santa finally reaches the first house on his list, his “bowl full of jelly” gets him stuck in the chimney Things turn from bad to worse when he’s chased by a Parisian poodle and slips on a rigatoni noodle. Santa is ready to throw in the towel, when at his very last house he is reminded of what Christmas is really about-the gift of love. This merrily irreverent picture book, brought to life by Gregg and Evan Spiridellis, will tickle funny bones and touch hearts far and wide.”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My two cents: My favorite Christmas kids book by far. The vibrant pictures and hilarious story bring laughs to all who read it. We received it as a gift and it’s one of my favorite gifts to give as well. I guess I will have to buy 3 more copies to save for my kids when they fly the nest, cause they can’t have mine!
