The True Story of Santa’s Sleigh by Christine Kotowycz
The True Story of Santa’s Sleigh captures the magic and fantasy of Christmas. Taking place in the countryside several days after Christmas, a sparkle is revealed in the freshly fallen snow as the sun peeks through the clouds. What could this be? Where did it come from?
Soon after, the children become wrapped up in the mystery of a sleigh abandoned in a snowdrift. Curious letters begin to arrive. Who are these letters from? Is it possible that the sleigh belongs to Santa?
Through the letters a secret relationship develops between Santa and the children. Santa shares anecdotes about his northern home and the busy preparations for Christmas Eve.
One day Santa has a special request for the children. In order to help Santa, the children must discover the power and magic of the Christmas Spirit within themselves, and once they do, something extraordinary takes place that one special Christmas Eve.
The illustrations in the story capture the icy-cold landscape of a Canadian country winter. The curling and trailing smoke from the chimneys and the warm glow from within the homes and church provide a cozy, inviting, and reassuring contrast.
This sweet Christmas story is sure to encourage imagination and warm feelings.

The Christmas Adventure by Stephen Moore
It’s Christmas Eve night. Neatly wrapped presents are under a tree that is laden with decorations. The kitchen is well-stocked for tomorrow’s feast. The halls are decked. The fire is fading as silence settles in the living room.
All is warm and cozy in the house, while outside a winter storm rages and the north wind howls as if demanding to get inside out of the cold.
The scene is set. Now is the perfect time for the others who live in the house to make their own arrangements to enjoy seasonal merriment and a festive feast. With the family nestled all snug in their beds, two mice get stirring.
Murgatroyd, a member of the elite M.I.N.U.T.E. (Mice International Network Unit Team Elite) tactical team and his young cousin, Archimedes, set off on a Christmas Eve raid on the refrigerator. This annual Yuletide caper had been meticulously planned earlier by senior mice, but, as the poet Robbie Burns once said, the “best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry.”
Following the plan to the letter, Archimedes and Murgatroyd discover only fridge tracks. Horror of horrors, it’s been stolen! Join our intrepid adventurers on their quest to find the missing appliance and steal it back. It’s an adventure that brings out the light of the holiday season.
Through it all, one little mouse will need to stand tall to save Christmas. With a little help from Santa, of course.
