Get into the Spirit of Christmas!

As pre-Christmas excitement amongst children begins to mount, this funny picture book will add much to the sum of general happiness and merriment! For the first time ever, Santa has lost his Christmas list. His elves tell him not to worry and bundle him off to bed. When Santa does climb into his sleigh something’s clearly not right: his driving skills are terrible, and no-one seems to be getting the right presents! Children will find the scenes of general chaos very funny, and be happy to see that all is sorted by the end, with Santa comfortably back in control! ~ Andrea Reece

He doesn't seem to be able to get anything right. Could he be the wrong Santa? Find out if Christmas can be saved in this hilarious story!
