Santa Duck and His Merry Helpers

Santa Duck and His Merry Helpers

by David Milgrim Illustrated by David Milgrim

It's Christmastime, so Nicholas Duck puts on his Santa's helper suit and proudly starts gathering wish lists for Santa. But this year, Nicholas's little brothers and sister want to help. Nicholas is not too keen on the idea, and when the overeager ducks try to outdo each other by promising outlandish gift — the Hoover Dam for the beaver, a castle for the frog — Nicholas gets fed up. And as he tries to explain to his siblings what Christmas is all about, it turns out the kids have a thing or two to teach Nicholas about working together.

With its funny text and illustrations, this story will have kids laughing as they celebrate the spirit of the season with Santa Ducks.
