Santa's Gotta Go


We all know that Santa Claus is one cool dude! But how is he as a house guest? Find out in this hilarious picture book by bestselling author, Derrick Barnes.

The number one thing on Monte and Mabel’s Christmas wish list is the chance to hang out with Santa Claus. So when his sleigh breaks down in their garden as he’s finishing up his last delivery, they couldn’t be more delighted. 
Santa’s going to stay with them while he waits for spare parts to be delivered - it’s a dream come true! Or is it? It turns out Santa doesn’t have a lot of experience being a house guest, and likes to rock out late at night and swig spaghetti sauce from the jar. But when he messes with Dad’s motorcycle and Mabel’s computer tablet, he’s gone a step too far, and the whole family agrees - Santa’s gotta go! But how on earth do you kick out Santa Claus?

Readers will get a kick out of this hilarious holiday tale by 
New York Times bestselling author Derrick Barnes, with its funny reminder to be careful what you wish for and to remember that sharing the holiday spirit can take a lot of goodwill!
