No laughing matter
When Santa Lost his Ho! Ho! Ho! is an amusing tale written and illustrated by Laura Rader. During a busy Christmas season, Santa is so worn out that he suddenly loses his laugh. His entire workforce of elves is horrified, and all unite to try to get him ho-ho-ho-ing again. He goes to the doctor, watches funny movies and listens to endless jokes. People from around the world try to help, especially the children, who begin a frantic letter-writing campaign. Finally, a little girl named Holly sends a letter and drawing that do the trick.
Preschoolers and young elementary students will delight in this energetic story, with fun-filled, busy, cartoonlike illustrations. It's one of the more light-hearted books of the bunch, and a good complement to the somber tones and themes of Amazing Peace.
