Description
Things up north are going south—"Sacks are getting bigger. Chimneys are getting smaller. And you never know what the weather will throw at you."—so Santa and the missus decide to take a vacation to sunny Mistletoe Island, in this hilarious tribute to being true to your calling, for readers up to 8. The Clauses have the time of their lives going swimming, surfing, even hula dancing (yes, Santa is in a grass skirt). Still it comes as a bit of a shock to the reindeer when he announces that he means to retire and stay on the island. But can there be a Christmas without Santa? And can Santa really be jolly without Christmas? The book's painted cartoon illustrations feature plenty of comic details and cheerful overacting—particularly by the reindeer.

"The digital illustrations exuberantly serve up the comedic elements, from the exaggerated reindeer weeping to the changes in Santa's demeanor. Of course, there's a satisfying solution to the situation. The message that even those passionate about their work need the occasional break to recharge will make it easy to share the book beyond the holiday season."—School Library Journal
