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!
