The adorably funny portrait of an oddball kid who fulfills his destiny--and two very proud parents."-- From Amazon.com.

Was Santa really and truly a baby at one time? Yes, although it’s hard to imagine it, he was … and what an unusual baby!
Instead of making the usual cooing and gurgling noises, Santa would boom out a hearty “Ho, Ho, Ho!” that rattled the windows (and startled his parents). His favourite colour was always red. As he grew older, he loved to give presents to everyone, and he became fascinated with chimneys, sleighs and reindeer.
His doting parents simply adored him.
When Santa became a teenager, he continued to be unusual. He didn’t always fit in with the crowd – but even so, he was popular with everyone else and had many friends.
You can probably guess where Santa ended up when he became an adult … the North Pole, of course! He became one of the most famous – and one of the most popular - people in the world.
Needless to say, his parents were very, very proud of him!
** Recommended for ages 3 to 6 years.
