Pictorial hard cover with matching DJ, light dust soil on DJ along with light edge roll. Wood carvings by Imelda George. From the flap: The problem, Jesse believes, started a few months ago, when his mother decided they should leave the city where he grew up and move to a small seaside village. Rent would be cheaper and his mom could do her wood carving to make a living. Now Jesse has left behind friends and hockey. Not only is he bored, but there's a boy at his new school whose teasing hurts to the bone. To make matters worse, it's the second day of December, and if his mom can't sell enough carvings to pay the rent, who knows if they'll even have a Christmas. How could moving to this place possibly work out? For Jesse, the answer comes in the most surprising way - as surprising as the newly carved Santa his mom brings to him each day. The House of Wooden Santas is a deeply felt story about belief in oneself and others, and belief in the spirit of the season. It is magical and contemporary and traces the days of December like an advent calendar. ; 0.5 x 12.3 x 9.2 Inches; 95 pages
