Dan Santat presents The Great Santa Stakeout!
A delightfully devious Christmas story!
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.
If you can't make it to the event but would like a copy signed and personalized, please feel free to contact us before the event or order online below.
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?

The Nightrunner series has quickly become my new favorite fantasy series. Flewelling has created a full and interesting fantasy world that brings freshness to many classic tropes of the genre. Luck in the Shadows shines when it comes to characters. Flewelling knows how to let a character grow naturally and come to life in her stories. Any lover of high fantasy age 16 and up should make this a part of their collection. - Pete
