An unexpected visitor makes Christmas special for a little boy. While performing a trial run for Santa Claus--the reindeer are far too dainty and aloof for such risky business--Mr. Moose goes off course and crashes through the roof of Billy Wagner's house, injuring his leg. There's nothing to do but to stay there until he recovers, regaling the family with stories until Father Christmas comes to get him. Billy's fascination with Mr. Moose lifts the little boy's spirits as he faces a new year with hope. This perennial best-seller in Germany will bring Christmas cheer to all readers.
