When Priscilla and her best friend Bettina eagerly join the other holiday shoppers to see Santa at the mall, they realize they are looking at not one, but several fake Santas! The girls decide there's only one thing to do: Head to the North Pole to find the real Santa Claus.
With an artistic style reminiscent of Dr. Seuss and Hilary Knight, Priscilla and the Great Santa Search captures the magic of Christmastime and every child's fascination with the one and only Santa Claus. Best of all, this new paperback edition features a redesigned cover with sparkling red foil, offering a gifty feel to this classic story.

Jocelyn and Nathaniel Hobbie are the daughter and son of bestselling author/artist, Holly Hobbie. Jocelyn holds a B.F.A. from RISD and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Nathaniel is a writer and fine artist, working and living in Holyoke, Massachusetts. They have collaborated on four Priscilla picture books together.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2–Pink-clad Priscilla's name is splashed across the cover in huge red glitter letters, and the kitschy cartoon artwork continues the red and pink overkill as the girl and her best friend head to the North Pole to meet Santa. Topknots and bows decorate the heads of these Kewpie dollish, always-fashionable little girls. They plan their trip, taking along their lapdog, tea set, and other necessities as they ski cross county due north. They meet some interesting creatures and endure a class-seven squall, but return home without a Santa sighting. The ever-effervescent duo seems satisfied with the hint of a reindeer-drawn sleigh in the background of one of the photos, but readers who have slogged through this journey described in singsong rhyme will be sorely disappointed.–Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library
