Santa's Spies Are Fireflies

Carolyn Laurentus

When Santa goes on vacation, he realizes that children need to behave during the summer months too. Knowing who is "naughty or nice" isn't just for the winter months leading up to the "big day!" But who can help him with this task?


Follow Santa into the deep woods where he hopes to enlist the help of some very small friends. You might know their tiny, blinking presence from your own back yard. These summer miracles of nature just might be on a secret mission from Santa!


Beautifully illustrated with impeccable details and a gentle rhyme for young readers, Santa's Spies Are Fireflies is destined to become a new Christmas classic!
