Description
Readers of all ages will delight in this hilarious holiday tale about remaining true to yourself. It's a New Year's resolution - a brand new Santa. But do kids really want a slimmer, hipper, cyber Santa? He seems to think so, and gets to work on his resolution to slim down, pump-up and become more fashion forward. Mrs. Claus patiently watches Santa go through his mid-life crisis while preparing the North Pole for a traditional holiday. His new look isn't exactly a hit and on Christmas Eve when he "climbs into his old-fashioned sleigh, dressed in his old-fashioned way" he's learned a valuable lesson. A new, improved Santa is one who is true to himself and to the spirit of Christmas.
