From author, Jill Ammon Vanderwood, AKA Mrs. Claus, award winning picture book Santa's Mysterious Boot and The Year Santa Lost His List offer a new twist on classic stories of Santa and his elves.

Children wonder how Santa makes snow in places like New Zealand where it’s summer at Christmas time. ‘Santa’s Mysterious Boot’ tells of Santa Claus trying out a new boot with buttons along the side. One button makes snow in warmer climates. Santa encounters two boys, trying to stay up and catch Santa Claus in the act. He fumbles with the buttons. Rather than pressing the turbo charged button to exit up the chimney, he makes snow in the living room and then announces his presence with the tune, ‘Here comes Santa Claus.’ He unintentionally leaves his boot behind. When the boys attempt to catch the real Santa Claus, he teaches them a lesson that helping others is the true spirit of Christmas.

‘Santa’s Mysterious Boot’ is the winner of the Dove Foundation, http://www.dove.org/?s=Santa%27s+Myterious+Boot Family Friendly for all Ages Seal of Approval and the Gold Quill Award from the League of Utah Writers.

New this year, ‘The Year Santa Lost His List.’ Before Santa had GPS Navigation, he relied on his elves to type his list, and the reindeer to lead the way on Christmas Eve. His list was fine when he headed out that night. When he reached the last town in Maine, before heading for Canada, the wind blew the list out of his hand. He still had gifts to deliver, with no idea which gift to give to which child. He made his best guess, but still delivered the gifts wrong. Things turned out much better than Santa expected. That is the year that all the kids discovered new talents.

Jill Ammon Vanderwood is the author of nine books. She is an honorary member of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas. Along with her Santa Claus husband, she sees hundreds of children during the Christmas season.
