'Twas the night before Christmas, when the North Pole's Peppermint Post Office is anything but quiet! Postmaster Buck and his crew of penguins can't rest until all of Santa's letters and gifts are sorted and on Santa's sleigh.
But what happens when Buck discovers a lost letter after the reindeer already left the North Pole? An amusing, hilarious, epic adventure quickly ensues to deliver a little girl's Christmas gift before midnight.
Bruce Hale's fun rhythmic text makes it the perfect holiday read-aloud to get into the Christmas spirit, and paired with Stephanie Laberis's humorous art, everyone from toddlers to scrooges will be laughing along.
Praise For Peppermint Post…
