This Christmas story is a spirit-lifting, philosophical fantasy taht will delight the young and young at heart.
Mumsel (AKA Anne-Marit Bergstrom) has had a life-long love affair with Santa Claus. In this book Snarlie, Santa's eldest and most influential elf, tells of a moment in time when the Jolly Old Soul had difficulty getting ready for Christmas on time. It was the Christmas that almost wasn't. Then Mrs. Santa contacted Whatzizname, an efficiency expert. He came to the North Pole to establish a 12-day plan. He also convinced Santa and the elves "You can if you believe you can."
The attitude at the North Pole was thoroughly transformed from crippling negativism to such joyful exuberance that Snarlie writes a song that concludes with the line: "Life becomes magical when you believe!"
The book shows how Santa takes charge and turns negative thinking into a positive attitude and action. If you want your children to realize the power of a positive attitude, you will want to share this book with them.
The second series can be seen on display at the Holiday Inn Express in Saint Croix Falls, WI each Christmastime.
