The Great Santa Stakeout book cover

Dan Santa... We mean Santat will be joining us for a special storytime to set you off in hillarious holiday-themed laughter! He will be reading from his new book The Great Santa Stakeout, then he will show us some fun drawings! After he will answer questions - no matter how silly - and then sign books.

About the Book: Freddy Melcher is Santa's #1 Fan. He has Santa posters, Santa action figures, and even Santa underwear. But there is one prize Freddy desperately wants: A photograph taken with Santa, fresh out of the chimney. 

Oh, is it risky! It's awfully hard to sneak anything by someone who can see you when you're sleeping and knows when you're awake. That's why Freddy has been extra good this year . . . at hiding his plans. 

Will Freddy get away with his delightfully devious scheme to outwit Santa Claus himself and capture the ultimate selfie?

Just a beautiful, simply worded book about a young girl's summer on Deer Island as she starts to gently mature and have her first crush, including her first kiss. A sweet delight of a story that will surely resonate with tweens. - Maureen
