Have a merry, old-fashioned Christmas with this enchanting book! With the pull of a tab, Santa and his reindeer-driven sleigh fly across a beautiful night sky and over the rooftops. A snow-covered evergreen suddenly lights up beside a glowing fire. Little chefs create a perfect gingerbread house. All these special Christmas moments, and more, magically appear in this stunningly illustrated changing picture book. Kirsten Hall's lyrical verses will delight readers of all ages and Simon Mendez's exquisite art brings the holiday season to life.
