An out-of-this-world remix of the classic poem “A Visit from Saint Nicholas”!

It’s Christmas Eve. The Martians have hung their stockings and decorated their trees in hopes that Santa will finally visit the red planet. But what are the excited Martians to do when Santa’s sleigh shudders and shimmies and stops? Then teeters and totters and drops? It’ll take a dose of Christmas magic and some help from the Outer Space Rescue Division to get this holiday back on track.

Humorous, rhyming text and vibrant illustrations combine to make a perfect winter read-a-loud, destined to become a classic.

The picture book is 32 pages, full color.

Penny has been a Texas Star favorite with her previous children’s books, There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight and A Cooked Up Fairy Tale.
