From December first through Christmas,
Santa Claus got down to business,
Making fifty zillion toys
For the world's good girls and boys.
All that month, he worked his rear off.
Then he took the whole next year off!


What does Santa do with his hard-earned vacation time? The same stuff you would do to relax and have fun-and a whole lot more! In this uproarious tale by popular author and Simpsons writer Mike Reiss, Santa recovers from a hectic December by embarking on an hilarious campaign of adventure and self-improvement-from sumo wrestling to international espionage to continuing education (including Elf Esteem and Basic Reindeer Labor Laws). But no matter where he goes or what he does, he's still our beloved Santa Claus, as Michael Montgomery's comically classic illustrations reveal. So, thanks, Santa, for all your hard work. Go ahead and take the year off!
