Ill. by Tom Jellett. Random House, 2012. Hbk., RRP $A19.95. ISBN 9781742748801. (Also available as an ebook 9781742748801)
Santa has a secret and I can't tell you too much about this book without giving the secret away. But if you want to know what Santa gets up to after he's finished delivering all the presents, and if you're looking for a fantastic tale, superbly illustrated, that has a twist in the tale and is the perfect addition to your collection of Christmas books, this is the one to buy.And look out for who's on your beach this summer and be suspicious if your child comes home with a free present and a strange story.
