Overview

Poor Santa! Not only are the reindeer complaining of all manner of aches (head, stomach, and back), but he's not feeling too tip-top himself.
Santa's not getting any younger, you know, and what with the rising cost of reindeer feed, tempers getting shorter all around, and an old sleigh far too heavy and over-laden, there's a growing danger that the Big Night will arrive to find Santa Claus...GROUNDED!
Of course, everything turns out just as it should — thanks primarily to the concientious Police Officer Bertha, Santa's perky Auntie Flo, a mountain bike, a skateboard, skis, and a fabulous hot air balloon — and Victor and Glenys Ambrus have wonderful fun tieing up all the loose ends and overturning all the catastrophies.
The Ambrus' have created a delightfully woe-beset Santa that children will love, and his story will enchant them with humor and all the joys of the season.
