Sometimes even the merriest, most cheerful guy on the planet wakes up on the wrong side of the bed...
First, after a restless night due to Mrs. Claus's snoring, Santa awakes on Christmas morning and stubs his toe. Then the elves shrink his suit, his sleigh gets buried in a snowdrift, and he gets stuck in a chimney. Santa’s had just about enough! But just in the nick of time, he discovers a very special gift of milk and cookies waiting for him. As he munches on the delicious snack, Santa's remembers what Christmas is all about the gift of love and, merrily, his grumpies melt away.
Now available as a board book, this merrily irreverent Yuletide story, brought to life by Gregg and Evan Spiridellis, will tickle funny bones and touch hearts far and wide.

It’s not just the Grinch who gets grumpy around Christmastime. Sometimes even the man in the red suit gets out of bed on the wrong side. In this light-hearted tale of woe, Santa stubs his toe on a bowling ball, has to wear his itchy wool suit when the elves shrink his other one in the dryer, and gets stuck in the first chimney he tries. That "bowl full of jelly" belly has apparently gotten out of hand (as a blue-eyeshadowed Mrs. Claus tries to tell him at breakfast). Of course, when you consider that even the Grinch has a change of heart eventually, you just know Santa will come through this crabby mood at some point.
Brothers Gregg and Evan Spiridellis team up on this somewhat bumpy rhyming story with computer-generated artwork. It may never make it on the list of all-time Christmas classics, but it’s a fun little diversion in the mood of the more masterful Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day(Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
