Overview

Santa's parents think their little one is absolutely wonderful, even though he has a booming voice instead of a baby's gurgle, loves to stand in front of the refrigerator, gives his birthday presents away, trains his hamsters to pull a matchbox sleigh ... and has an unusual interest in chimneys. The adorably funny portrait of an oddball kid who fulfills his destiny - and two very proud parents.

We all know what Santa has done as an adult, but what was he like as a baby and child. How did he become the jolly elf who delivers presents to all the children in the world? An imaginative and charming tale about what Santa was like as a baby and a small child. Santa stars as a cute baby with a gorgeous Ho,ho,ho (no baby babbling for him) before becoming a toddler/young child who got even more enjoyment out of giving his toys and presents away than receiving him. He loved red and wanted to wear it all the time. He had a best friend who was short who loved making toys. Even though they were different, they we accepted by all the other kids. Santa's parents go through what all parents do in trying to figure out what he will become as he grows older. Of course they are thrilled when he grows up and becomes exactly what he is, the wonderful Spirit of Christmas, Santa Claus. A Christmas story about Santa for any and all to add to their bookshelves.
