Watch the video trailer for The Christmas Magic.Far, far North, when the nights are longest and the stars shine brightest, Santa begins to prepare for his big night of giving. He gathers his reindeer, feeds them parsnips and berries, and polishes his bells and his sled. Then lovingly, he chooses toys for every child in the world. For Santa loves them all, and he knows what each child at heart wants most. Then, with the thrum of magic that makes reindeers fly, he spreads the Christmas joy and warmth throughout the world--as he always has — and always will until the end of time.Lauren Thompson, known for her extraordinary ability to touch the hearts of the very youngest children, has created an uplifting and beautiful Christmas experience. Jon J Muth's warm, enchanting artwork thrums with the kind of magic that makes reindeer fly!"Muth's idyllic, wintry watercolors and pastels set the mood as 'the night begins to thrum with magic, the kind of magic that makes reindeer fly.' Readers, like Santa, will feel the magic, too." — Publishlers Weekly, starred review *"It's the air of magic and mystery, which prevails in both text and art, that will capture children's interest and allow them to accept a Santa that is not the norm. " — Booklist"Thompson”s quiet text captures the story"s breath-held hush of anticipation leading to The Christmas Magic: 'It has come at last, as it always has, and always will.' Muth's tranquil watercolor and pastel illustrations displaying the snowy, remote setting subtly incorporate familiar Christmas symbols and motifs. A perfect way to settle overexcited young ones for Christmas Eve bedtime." — Horn Book
