A Christmas extravaganza by the author of Dinosaur Bob and His Adventures with the Family Lazardo. Full-color illustrations.

Art Atchinson Aimesworth receives an invitation from Santa Claus to visit the North Pole, and promptly heads north with his sister and his pal. His trip is full of adventure--and it ends with a gentle lesson from Santa about family harmony.
Author Bio
William Joyce
William Joyce's first full-length picture book, BILLY'S BOOGER, written while he was in elementary school, got him sent to the principal's office. Since that time he has created a number of well-loved and less "gross" works such as DINOSUAR BOB(1988) and BENTLY AND EGG (1992). He attended Southern Methodist University and worked as painter before becoming the author and illustrator of picture books. Joyce says that he is influenced by cartoons, television, and movies--his favorite movie character, King Kong, has a cameo appearance in nearly every one of his books.

Praise
