The bestselling star of NO, DAVID! turns Christmas traditions upside down with laugh-aloud humor.
Readers of all ages will vividly remember trying to peek at hidden gift packages; writing scrolls of wish lists to Santa, and struggling to behave at formal Christmas dinner parties. Always in the background, we know Santa Claus is watching, soon to decide if David deserves a shiny new fire truck or a lump of coal under the tree. From playing with delicate ornaments to standing in an endlessly long line for Santa, here are common Christmas activities--but with David's naughty trimmings. A surefire hit that is destined to be an annual classic.
