From the Inside Flap
Here's a gift from Santa for anyone who is a child at heart at Christmas! Ed Butchart is Santa Claus--and in his first book, The Red Suit Diaries, he made fans out of readers. His knack for celebrating Christmas all year and in all ways continues to attract readers in his new book, More Pages from the Red Suit Diaries. Anyone who loves Christmas will relish reading Butchart's stories about hearing the heartfelt wishes of children. And there's much more as Santa tells all: introductions to the real-life "elves" in Santa's world, stories of entire families' lives changed by Santa's presence, and the blessings of the valuable work he does in his workshop, refurbishing wheelchairs for thousands of disabled children and adults in need. This Santa is so much more than a jolly man in a funny suit. He's a living, breathing testament to the "faith, hope, and love" for which Christians should be known. Readers of this book will keep the giving spirit of Christmas--and of faith--in their hearts all year long.

Top Customer Reviews
Reading More Pages from the Red Suit Diaries was a breath of fresh air and it gave me an entirely new view on who Santa is; historical and contemporary. Ed Butchart shares in his 2nd book more stories of those he met and created relationships as Santa. It cracks me up that people will approach Ed and act as if they're the first one whose ever thought he looks like Santa.
I never realized that Santas, many of them, take this job literally and seriously! What a ministry they can have. The lives they have the ability to touch is profound. They can bring hope and joy to the lives of the kids that they meet. There are colleges where men can get their degrees in being a Santa. How incredible is that? Being Santa is serious business.
On top of being Santa, and touching the lives of many, Ed and his wife Annie (who has passed away) began a non-profit organization called FODAC (Friends of Disabled Adults and Children). They give away refurbished wheelchairs to disabled people. It's an amazing story how this ministry came about.
Reading this story, you will gain insight into the daily life of a Santa. I learned more about Santa than I ever thought there was to know. The personal stories Ed shares will tug at your heartstrings and I doubt anyone will be able to look at Santa in the same light again.
As Santa he has made impacts on many children's and adults from all different walks of life, and even helped out when tragedy touched the families. Mr. Butchart shares story after story about how he has reached others, and how many people are convinced that he truly is Santa.
I usually avoid memoirs, but I did enjoy reading Mr. Butchart's collection. He has a sense of humor that is evident in the pages of the book and it is touching how he does seem to care for the children and adults he meets, and even prays for them.
If you are looking for the "real Santa" and want to know stories from his experience, then look up MORE PAGES FROM THE RED SUIT DIARIES. It is available at www.amazon.com and other booksellers.
