Peter Claus and the Naughty List
Naughty or nice? Peter Claus thinks this yearly question is most unfair. As Santa's son, he should know. For the second year in a row his name appears on the dreaded Naughty List. That means no presents for Christmas! But Peter doesn't remember misbehaving-at least not enough to deserve such a harsh punishment. Taking the reins to Santa's sleigh, Peter rounds up all the naughty children the world over. He wants Santa to hear their side. Maybe then Santa will see that not receiving gifts at Christmas isn't the fairest way to deal with kids who do bad deeds. Peter's not sure if his plans will work, but he does know a lot of boys and girls need his help if they have any chance of waking up to a merry Christmas. Ages 4-8. Click here to peek inside the book.
