Sal Lizard began to resemble Santa Claus in his twenties, but did not start to play him until his thirties. Sal continued to make appearances as Santa for many years in such varied places as hospitals, private homes, appearances for a radio station and the ubiquitous Santa at the mall.
One of the most poignant stories for me was about Timmy, who was in the burn unit at a hospital and asked Santa a imploring question.
He quickly learned that children have a unique and often more meaningful view of Christmas than adults. His stories are charming, touching, and funny. This is a delightful book that would make a great aloud reading for families with older children (you don’t want create suspicions in the youngsters).
I received this book as an Advanced Reading Copy from LibraryThing.com
