Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Twas the week before Christmas! All over the world The children were breathless as visions unfurled Of the magical time when their dreams would take flight And the sweet sound of sleigh bells would ring in the night.

But Santa was frantic―he wasn’t elated, For his dear Mrs. Claus could not be located. The lists were not finished; the maps were a mess, And where to deliver was anyone’s guess.

Santa’s sweet wife was indeed indispensable. To question her value was quite reprehensible. She took care of Santa, the man she revered. She ironed his red outfit and trimmed his white beard.

But she’d flown off to Paris one day in September For a Fashion Week peek and she’d vowed to remember To fly back at once after sampling the food, Enhancing her wardrobe, and lifting her mood.

What a sweet book about Mrs. Claus going shopping in Paris from September to December. Santa was frantic because he depended on her so much to get things ready for Christmas. So he went to Paris to look for her. Of course after looking in all the shops he found her in a sweets shop. They had a wonderful evening in Paris then returned to get ready to make the Christmas deliveries. His memories were sweet of the City of Light. Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.

This would make an excellent gift for someone who loves to collect Night Before Christmas books in other countries.

Our daughter and son-in-law were married in Paris and this was a perfect stocking stuffer. I enjoyed reading it before Chrismas Ever. Great read with so much detail to Paris.

I thought this book might at least mention one or two French Christmas customs. It doesn't. This is really not a Christmas story like the real Night Before Christmas. It's a story that happens to feature Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
