Summary
"After an exhausting Christmas, Santa and Mrs. Claus head for sunny Mistletoe Island, where they surf, golf, and learn the hula. They even start eating healthy. (No more cookies and milk!) Vacation is so much fun that Santa decides to retire, much to the reindeer and elves' dismay. Can there be a Christmas without Santa and can Santa be jolly without Christmas?"
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Santa is jolly when he's making toys. Not so much when he's delivering them: "Forget it. Sacks are getting bigger. Chimneys are getting smaller." Burned out, he and Mrs. Claus head to tropical Mistletoe Island, where they begin eating healthfully and exercising. When the reindeer visit, they learn that Santa has decided to retire, and they gloomily return to the North Pole to take over-with disastrous results. Kids should get a kick out of the many fish-out-of-water scenarios Biedrzycki (Santa's New Jet) provides as Santa tries out the diving board, tennis, and dance lessons in a grass skirt. His flashy digital art-with dazzling colors, amusing exaggeration, and silly extras-keeps things hopping. Ages 4-7. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
