Lisa Trumbauer and Jannie Ho have whipped up a fresh, fabulous and very funny book. In a playful take on The Night Before Christmas , the talented pair provides kids with a one-of-kind, behind-the-scenes peek into Santa's workshop. It seems that all is not well at the North Pole: the reindeer have gone on strike and Santa's auditioning a menagerie of other animals to take their place.
