Description
"On Christmas Day I will bring you a bell from Pere Noel's very own sleigh "
That's the promise Beatrice makes when the children from the village ask whether Santa is real or not. Beatrice is, after all, the most clever girl in the whole north woods. But, while she herself is quite certain that Pere Noel is real, can she outsmart him in order to prove it? Or will she finally find herself up against someone who is even more clever than she?
A very special Christmas treat by the Charlotte Zolotow Award-winning team who first introduced you to Clever Beatrice.
