Santa Calls

A richly  illustrated, dazzling fantasy set in 1908, this is MB’s all-time favorite Christmas book.  Santa sends a flying machine dubbed the Yuletide flyer to transport our young heroes from their home in Abilene Texas to the North Pole. This magical, swashbuckling adventure includes  evil villains, snowball fights, and candy bombs, all as a boy learns not to underestimate his little sister.  Parents might want to keep a box of tissues handy for the last page.
