About the Book


The holidays may be near, but Santa is dreaming of a sunny beach vacation. In this quirky book of Christmas poems, J. Patrick Lewis and Rob Shepperson pair up to find humor and magic in the snowiest season. Rhymes of all shapes explore Kris Kringle's favorite time of year, and colorful drawings expose the joy and comedy of the holidays.


"Lewis once again shows his nimble way with rhyme and wordplay." --Booklist

"Shepperson's quirky illustrations in watercolor and ink complement each poem with a variety of illustration sizes." --Kirkus Reviews
