Short Poems from the North Pole (Junior Library Guild Selection)
You know that Santa can fly a sleigh, squeeze down chimneys, and circle the globe in a night. But did you know that another of his talents is writing haiku?
December 1: White envelopes float / from my overfilled mailbox-- / December's first storm.
December 24: Which is packed tighter / the sack full of toys or the / red suit full of me?
These twenty-five short poems--composed by Santa himself--give you a peek into life at the North Pole as the December days tick down to Christmas. See the hustle and bustle of the elves' workshop, feel the serenity of moonlight on fresh snow, and find out how Santa and Mrs. Claus keep busy as Santa's big night draws near.
