The Grinch meets Snowmen at Christmas in this rollicking, rhyming picture book that answers the question, Why can't Christmas last all year?

What happens when your Christmas cookies are too good? Santa comes . . . to stay! At first, it's fantastic: treats and toys and reindeer flights every day. Then Mrs. Claus arrives. And Baby Claus. And before long, the Easter Bunny and her babies Chuck and Puck and Luck and Duck and . . . you get the picture. By the time the Fourth of July rolls around, everyone's had a bit too much eggnog in their cereal and confetti in their hair. As one family discovers, maybe the true meaning of Christmas is about more than presents and sweets. And maybe there's a reason it comes but once a year.

"Smileworthy [with] lots of playful silliness . . . Here, too much Santa is a bad thing done just right."Kirkus
"Holiday hijinks reminiscent of Snowmen at Night make this a worthy addition." —SLJ
“Irreverent [and] high-energy.”PW
