About The Book

The problems are mounting for Santa Claus. The weather is bad, Rudolph is sick, and Mrs. Claus has a broken ankle! But worst of all, there is a newcomer trying to take over Christmas, and he’s a lot more naughty than nice!

The Holiday Heroes must come to the aid of their old friend. Will they be on time to save Christmas, or will this be Santa’s last stand?

SOS (Save Old Santa) contains valuable life lessons: the need to ask others for help, the importance of taking responsibility for your own actions, the power of forgiveness, and the key to happiness being found in being who you truly are.
