Forget everything you’ve heard about Santa: it’s not true. Author Marc Franco rewrites Christmas lore as a trio of friends is plunged into a fantasy world of reindeer commandos, elf spies, walking snowmen...and a Santa more Commander in Chief than Jolly Old Elf.
The story takes a creative twist on the holidays, but still resonates with age-old messages of child-like faith, good vs. evil and the power of the season.
It is six days before Christmas and incredibly weird things are happening in 11-year-old Jakob’s Florida neighborhood. His best friends -- Logan, Shig, and Fleep -- are convinced their Christmas is in danger, and then live snowmen strangely appear and confirm the threat. Jakob dismisses the bizarre events as nothing more than an elaborate hoax concocted by the bully down the street. But when the bully turns into smoke, a magical and powerful stranger appears as the mastermind behind the mayhem. The stranger demands the unimaginable and impossible: that Jakob catch Santa...or else!
