Overview

Journey to the North Pole and beyond in seven holiday tales for the young at heart:

"The Gingerbread Reindeer" - When Santa finds himself one reindeer short for the Christmas run, the frost-elf Boreas enchants a replacement. But there's more than elf-magic being worked, and when an ancient foe threatens them all, the gingerbread reindeer finds he's made of more than just flour and sugar.

"Special Delivery" - It's Christmas Eve, and Phillip Cottington--a.k.a. the Easter Bunny--is already planning for spring. But when a letter intended for Santa gets delivered to him instead, Phillip has to make sure it gets through in time.

"Holly's Jolly Christmas" - All the young reindeer Holly dreams of is to be part of Santa's team, but no one will give her the chance--until a child's letter starts her on a path that will take her places she never imagined.

"An Older World" - Jakob the toymaker lives in a world of grief, until a special toy gives him a chance at a new life.

"The First Winter" - A mother bear tells her cubs the story of how First Bear defeated Death.

"Nativity" - An orphaned girl finds an unusual place to belong.

"Santa's Summer Vacation" - By order of Mrs. Claus, Santa and his head elf Fussbudget travel to the magical island of Serendipity to relax on the beach. But Maelstrom, evil King of the Eighth Sea, has other plans for Santa.

With a blend of humor and heart, warmth and wonder, fantasy author Renee Carter Hall presents seven short stories for all ages, crafted in the spirit of the year's most magical season.
