Overview

What was Santa like as a child? Award-winning author/illustrator Jon Agee brings us the funny, playful answer in this Christmas picture book—now available as a board book.

Little Santa loves the North Pole. The rest of his family? Not so much. So, when they decide to move to Florida, Santa is miserable. Lucky for him, a blizzard foils their plans. The only way out of the house is up the chimney. Up goes Santa, to look for help, and along the way, he meets a reindeer and a large group of elves, who are more than eager to join in the rescue!

With the sly humor of Jon Klassen and the read-aloud pleasure of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the hardcover edition of Little Santa is already on its way to becoming a Christmas classic. Simple, bold illustrations and a smaller trim size make this board book edition the perfect way to share this story with Santa’s littlest fans.
