For Santa, December 26th was a horrible, awful day.
It was THE WORST DAY OF THE YEAR. Santa gets the post-holiday blues … When the toys are all made, the presents handed out, the Christmas cookies eaten, and the stockings unhung from the chimney with care … Santa is miserable. His reindeer and elves can't lift his spirits, and even a vacation with Mrs. Claus doesn't do the trick. Will Santa ever feel like his old holly-jolly self again? This quirky, funny, and completely unique picture book by hot young hipster illustrator Tad Carpenter will appeal to kids and parents alike.
