Scared of Santa offers a cornucopia of photographic funnies—from sixty-year-old family heirlooms to last year's howlers—along with delightful commentary on those unforgettable childhood visits to scary ol' Saint Nick.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Apparently, you'll either love this book, or hate it. I was disappointed with the size and binding, and some pictures look blurry from reprinting. Read morePublished on December 21, 2009 by D. Land
