Island SantaBook - 2012
Sam's sister, accompanied by their father, is in a city hospital, far away from their home on a remote island off the West Coast. Determined to be with his family for Christmas, Sam catches a ride on a Santa Boat, a vessel that brings Santa Claus to visit children along the coast. Before Sam is finally delivered to the city, he will become a seasoned deckhand and Santa's helper. And he will know what it is to bring happiness to others at Christmas, a present he will be able to share with his sister, who is waiting for him. In this beautiful picturebook, a distinguished author and illustrator team up to pay tribute to Kaare Norgaard, who annually transformed his ship, the Blue Fjord, into a floating sleigh that delivered Christmas gifts to island children who would otherwise do without.
