Who Will Help Santa This Year?

by Jerry Pallotta, illustrated by David Biedrzycki

Santa interviews a lot of different characters before finding just the right helpers for the workshop.

Santa has a great workshop and all the needed tools but must have helpers to get all of the work done. Dragons, fairies, leprechauns, and other magical creatures try out for the jobs but none seem to meet Santa's needs. A wizard accidentally turns Santa into a frog and the elves are hired when they have an idea on how to turn him back into his jolly old self. The illustrations are colorful and add to the enjoyment of the story. I especially like the one of Santa frog with his red hat and pince-nez glasses.
