Legend of Papa Noel Book Giveaway...

Around the world Santa Claus has many names. But in a deep, swampy bayou of Louisiana, he's known as Papa Noel. In such a hot and humid place, there can be no sleds or reindeer, so Papa Noel rides the river in a boat that's pulled by eight alligators with a snowy white one named Nicollette in the lead. On this particular Christmas Eve, it's so foggy on the river that even Nicollette's magical glowing green eyes may not be enough to guide Papa Noel. The alligators are tired, grumpy and bruised from banging into cypress trees, and Papa is desperate to get all the gifts to the little children. Well, "quicker than a snake shimmies down the river," the clever Cajun people come up with a solution that saves the day. A colorfully inventive Christmas tale, Papa Noel is a lesson in fast thinking, as well as a witty introduction to a part of America that's rich in folklore and legend.

Thanks to Terri Hoover Dunham I get to
give one of these great hardcover books away!
