About the Author
Billy Sharff is an author who writes for kids of all ages. He lives in a little house in the woods of New Hampshire with his wife and daughter. When not writing silly stories, Billy makes movies, writes songs, and visits every bookstore he can find. This is his debut picture book.

Eda Kaban has illustrated many popular books for children, including Pirates Don't Go to Kindergarten and Even Superheroes Have Bad Days. Born and raised in Turkey, Eda now lives in Oakland, California, with her husband, small son, and two Siamese cats.
"Story and art make for a smileworthy book with lots of playful silliness and a gentle reminder about the heart of Christmas. Here, too much Santa is a bad thing done just right." --Kirkus

"Accompanied by vibrant illustrations full of the color and movement, this is a fun and silly story that will be giggled over while shared time and again during the holiday season. . . . Holiday hijinks reminiscent of Caralyn's Buehner's Snowmen at Night make this a worthy addition to the holiday fare. --SLJ

"Rhyming, irreverent lines from Sharff [and] polished, high-energy cartooning by Kaban visualizes constant-Christmas chaos [with a] creative solution." --Publishers Weekly

"Energetic cartoon illustrations, featuring a creative problem-solving Black girl and her parents, capture the over-the-top premise, making the most of the hilarious chaos." --The Horn Book
