Life isn't always easy—even for Santa Claus! In this hilarious picture book, Santa realizes that happiness is something found within when he tries working different professions. A perfect Christmas gift or stocking stuffer with a subtle message about self-acceptance!

Santa is feeling grumpy! He has too many letters to read. His reindeer are quarreling. Someone's taken his slippers. And Mrs. Claus wants him to eat more vegetables. When Santa decides to try something new (working in a department store, bakery, toy store, and delivering mail), he discovers that nothing is as rewarding as just being himself.

Featuring a comical cast of animal characters—plus a small mouse with BIG attitude for readers to find hidden on every page—this hardcover picture book about self-acceptance and overcoming obstacles makes a great holiday gift for kids 3-7!
