About This Book
From Simpsons writer Mike Reiss and two-time New York Times Best Illustrated Books of the Year-winner David Catrow comes a hilarious follow-up to their best-selling How Murray Saved Christmas.
Meet Doc Holiday. As a therapist he's helped everyone from the Thanksgiving Turkey, with his recurring nightmares about Pilgrims, to Cupid and his personal romance problems -- he's remarkably shy for a guy with no pants! But when Saint Nick himself comes in and is diagnosed with a severe case of Santa Claustrophobia, the Doc gets the challenge of his career. Sending the big guy off to Aruba for some much-needed R and R, the Doc takes it on himself to round up the rest of the holiday gang to handle Christmas in Santa's absence.
The challenges become immediately apparent as the Easter Bunny paints all of the toys in pastels, Lincoln and Washington fight over who's in charge, Columbus insists he must sail West to go East to make the deliveries, and the April Fool manages to do everything wrong! Christmas is out of control, and it becomes clear to Doc Holiday that there's only one person who can set things right.
