It is Christmas Eve and Santa's sleigh is all ready to go. There he goes! He is off and flying across the night sky. "High above a sleeping town/Santa guides his reindeer down." Children are fast asleep in their beds, and they should not "peep" to see is Santa is here. Of course some of them may still open one eye if they hear anything that sounds suspicious.

In this mini pop-up book David Pelham's delightful pop-ups and his simple rhyming text come together perfectly to give young readers a picture of Christmas Eve. Because of its small size, this book would make a perfect stocking stuffer.
