Overview

It's the day after Christmas and Saint Nick's on vacation. His first stop: the little town of Greenwood, where he meets a most unusual Tree. Nick and the Tree go out on the town, but a freak snowstorm brings their festivities to an unexpected conclusion.

"This charming story by Nancy Adams is a perfect antidote to the after-Christmas blues, and it’s easy to root for the little tree taking its first draft of Ent juice. This particular Santa does swear a bit (“what the holly did I fall over?”), but he can’t help bestowing unexpected gifts in unexpected places.

And as for the little tree, whose greatest fear is an ax murderer (shudder), he learns a few happy lessons along the way.

Come to think of it, this story is also an antidote to the pre-Christmas blues. If you’re feeling a bit frantic, take a little jaunt with St. Nick and the Fir Tree."

--Fran Stewart
Author of Violet as an Amethyst: the 6th Biscuit McKee mystery

"With 'Saint Nick and the Fir Tree' Nancy Adams gives us a fun, quirky, different take on how a tree celebrates Christmas. Not with lots of tinsel but lots of magic! A good, short read for the holidays."

--Michele Drier, author of EDITED FOR DEATH in trade paperback, SNAP: THE WORLD UNFOLDS in ebook.

    Tree is really a yew but likes to pretend he¿s a fir. After all

    Tree is really a yew but likes to pretend he’s a fir. After all, yews
    make people think of all kinds of sad scenarios while firs bring the
    cheer of Christmas. Who wouldn’t want to be a fir? Tree also has a sense
    of adventure so when Santa Claus comes to town for his annual
    after-Christmas vacation, Tree is absolutely thrilled when Santa gives
    him a present and asks him to take a walk. Wait—take a walk? Trees
    can’t walk! Then again, this IS Santa and Santa DOES mean magic so off
    they go. To avoid being spotted by the neighbors, Tree is in disguise
    with sunglasses and a tasseled ski cap. Santa and Tree have a grand old
    time until they get lost in the snow…and find the body. Has there been
    foul play? Is a murderer on the loose? At this time of year, we become
    more and more frantic as Christmas approaches and it’s a pleasure when
    we find a few moments to just relax and enjoy the season. What better
    way to spend those few moments than reading—perhaps aloud to family and
    friends—such a charming tale as this? Saint Nick and the Fir Tree is the
    perfect little story to get one in the proper mood for the holidays.
