After so many years of delivering toys to children all over the world every Christmas Eve, Santa was cold and tired – exhausted, in fact. (Was it his imagination that the sacks of presents seemed to be getting heavier, the chimneys smaller, and the weather worse each year?)

Leaving the elves in charge, Santa and Mrs Santa flew to Mistletoe Island Resort for a well-earned vacation. Ahhhh! The weather was warm and Santa felt so relaxed. He swam, played tennis and took surfing and dance lessons - dressed in a hula skirt, of course.

Santa enjoyed himself so much that he decided to retire on the Island.

The reindeer and elves were aghast when they heard the news. They simply couldn’t imagine Christmas without Santa!

Then an odd thing happened. Santa suddenly found that he wasn’t enjoying the surfing, swimming or dancing anymore. Things just weren’t the same. He missed his team.

One day Santa read a newspaper and discovered that things weren’t going very well at the North Pole either.

He flew home that very day. It was true - things were a disaster in the toyshop. Santa and Mrs. Santa went right to work.

The predictable but happy ending to this delightful story of the “jolly old elf himself” and the humorous illustrations will leave young listeners chuckling.
