finished reading

This imagining of the secret world of Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus was written by a local author.  It is charming, delightful, and poignant.  I especially liked the palpable love between the Mr. & Mrs. and the enduring friendship with the elves.

I read this for a holiday book event at my library.  I've still got a smile on my face.

From the publisher:
They are Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, and they belong to Christmas. They have existed in the lives of most of us since we were children. Are they just figments of our imaginations? Or has our conjuring them up for so many holiday seasons given them the power to become real? What is life like at the North Pole? How do they survive in a land of so much ice and darkness? What does it take to prepare for that big night each December, the one we know as Christmas Eve? Are the elves similar to the ones we see in books and on Christmas cards? Who takes care of the reindeer, and do they really have names? In this small book about love, endurance, and the power of belief, K. C. McKinnon takes us into a world where Santa Claus, his wife, Milly, and even his elves are more like us than we realized. After reading THE SECRET WORLD OF MR. & MRS. SANTA CLAUS, everything you thought you knew about Christmas will change.
