Filled with racecar humor and more than forty laps of excitement, this Christmas story features Santy Claus and his pit crew as they compete in the race and leave behind treats of engines, pistons, and brakes for all the good racing boys and girls. It's a magical holiday treat in the spirit of the season for children of all ages.
Pelican's Night Before Christmas Series began with James Rice's now-classic Cajun Night Before Christmas, and it continues every year with new adventures of Santa Claus as he entertains readers, young and old, while celebrating the different Christmas traditions across the world.
