A story for cold winter days, and a picture book that will delight not only children and Santa Clauses.
It is always the smallest Santa who is the first to pack the presents, polish his boots and dust off his coat. But then, every year, the Chief Santa Claus in Christmas Village says that he can't come along. Because he's too small. And the big ones even make fun of him. Until Little Santa Claus discovers something that nobody in Christmas Village has known – that the animals of the great forest would like to have a Santa, too. They're really upset that the Santa Clauses never think of them, even though they live much closer than the people. When Little Santa Claus hears that, he knows what he has to do. And now he is the Santa Claus of the animals. Every year on Christmas Eve.
