The Christmas Chronicles, The Legend of Santa Claus
by Tim Slover
"Look out!" shouted Professor Wyatt. "You're missing the entrance! We'll be stranded!"
"I know... what I'm... doing!" panted the reindeer.
And he did. He gritted his teeth, got a hoof between the holly bushes, pivoted smartly on it, and swung into the road. The sleigh careened wide behind the reindeer, a runner came off the ground, sliced off a sprig of the left handed bush without knocking over it's pot, and then both runners slammed down onto the road as the reindeer bounded up it's steep, shining slope. That jolt sent a Something bouncing out of the sleigh and onto the road. It was solid and heavy and very close to the dimensions of the Oxford English Dictionary, Compact Edition. It slid down eleven feet of road, and stopped almost right at my feet.
Stay tuned for a review & giveaway of this wonderful new holiday books, just right to read in the evenings as a family before bedtime! Put December 6th on your calendar!
